Challenge Cup


In more than 30 years of operating Sail To Prevail, we have never needed to turn away a participant due to their lack of funds.

Therefore, we would like to acknowledge and thank the many individuals, private foundations, and charitable organizations that have been a consistent source of support to our mission over the years. Whether it is a sweet little girl, Isobel, who gave 8 one-dollar bills at a fund raising event, or Jim Clark, who gave $800,000 after winning St. Barth’s Bucket Regatta (see story), every donation – small or large, or anything in between – is received with heartfelt thanks on behalf of all our disabled participants.

There are many ways that you can support the mission of Sail To Prevail. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, so your donations are tax deductible:
