Kids who have never before experienced sailing are now commanding sailboats while mastering essential concepts in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math and developing a personal connection to their local waterways – and having the time-of-their-lives!

It happens every day at sailing centers around the country through US Sailing’s Reach Initiative.

Through Reach, sailing programs, schools, and educators have the tools and resources to bring STEM and SAILING together in an exciting, novel platform for learning.  With a solid foundation of learning modules, an educator guide, student materials and training initiatives; in only four short years, Reach has become the gold standard in STEM sailing for middle school students around the country.
