Community Sailing New Orleans launched its first programming in 2020, offering opportunities for everyone to get out on the water
With the goal of making Lake Pontchartrain accessible to everyone, Community Sailing New Orleans operates from the northeast corner of West End Park, just across the marina from popular restaurant The Blue Crab. The nonprofit works with local organizations to provide programs focused on positive youth development and STEM education and has a strong focus on adaptive sailing programs for local veterans and anyone with a mental or physical disability. Shown here are participants in one of the organization’s Warrior Sailing clinics. Future events for veterans are currently being scheduled and are sponsored by the Tolmas Foundation. Sailing opportunities are also available to the general public and include the ability to purchase a pass to take a boat out, adult learn to sail classes and youth summer camps.
