Hawaii Sailing Foundation


Hawaii Sailing Foundation


Hawaii Sailing Foundation was founded in 1977 by three of Hawaii's great sailors, Cy Gillette, Fred Smales, and Charlie Dole to provide funding to help Hawaii's youth and adult sailors represent Hawaii in US Sailing championships and training held on the mainland. Since then, our mission has expanded to include supporting Hawaii's sailors competing in events all over the world. The major source of income is the annual Sea Fest fundraiser which rotates between Hawaii Yacht Club, Kaneohe Yacht Club, and Waikiki Yacht Club.
