thank you everyone for another great year !

We just completed the most successful and busy year in the history of The MDI   Community Sailing Center (MDICSC). Growth continues across all programs:junior sailing, adult programs, member sailboat usage and private lessons.MDICSC now serves year round residents, summer residents and short term visitors to Mount Desert Island.Our youth racing programs have high quality boats and instruction, putting young sailors on the podium at both local and state regattas. We are able to keep watch over more students on the water each day through growth and maintenance of our sail and motorboat fleets.

A big part of our success is driven by the fact “we love beginners”! Everyone is welcome to walk through our doors and get out sailing. Our dedicated staff works very hard to create a positive, fun learning experience for all.

Each year we express to everyone how truly lucky we are to have community sailing on MDI. The concept has taken off across the country over the past twenty years; MDICSC was at the forefront of grassroots sailing back in 1996.We have a proud history as being the first community sailing center in the state of Maine as well as the first High School Sailing Team in the state.

This history is a wonderful thing to reflect upon. As great as it all has been we        cannot count on the past to repeat itself into the future without the continued support of our donors. As a true community nonprofit organization every dollar donated goes directly toward keeping us moving forward, sails trimmed.

We encourage you to please consider a year end donation to The MDI Community Sailing Center.
