Bow Sailing is an outreach program designed to bring about life skills alongside sailing development for the youth in the Caribbean and abroad.


This program is 100% donor funded and made possible by people and organizations like you. Donations go towards coaching expenses, equipment, transportation, and training materials. We are committed to teaching sailing and mindfulness to more youth on more islands. With your help we can fulfill these goals by bringing in more coaches, and offering more continued training. Thank you for believing in us and making a difference in many young lives!


Your typical “work”day consists of: waking up on a boat or in a room by the beach, go for a swim, have breakfast, find your way to the boat house for 9:30, coach Group 1 until 12… lunch break… coach Group 2 from 1:30 to 4, pack up boats and then relax! Regardless of your coaching experience or wellness background, if this mission resonates with you, please let us know and we’ll see where there may be a good fit.


Socially-minded individuals, sailing associations, hotels, and other establishments have brought us to their island to run clinics and ongoing programs to uplift the youth through sailing and wellness opportunities.


Do you live on an island and are involved with youth development? Looking to incorporate sailing training into the mix? We partner with individuals and organizations throughout the region to help bring about a collective mission of providing fun and structured camps for the local youth. Some of the local organizations we work with include Environmental Conservation Groups, Music Camps, Learn to Swim Programs, Kite-board schools, as well as pre-established sailing programs.
