CLINTON SAILING CLUB (CSC) IS OFFERING SAILING SCHOLARSHIPS!! CSC has 12 scholarships for Clinton children ages 8-18 to participate in a memorable one week sailing lesson experience. 

Sailors will learn parts of the boat, important sailing terms, and experience first hand what it is like to sail a boat in Clinton Harbor! Lessons take place at Clinton Town Beach daily from 9-12 and 1-4pm.

If you are interested in applying for a scholarship, your child will need to write a persuasive essay (1-2 pages) convincing CSC’s Board of Directors as to why they would be the perfect candidate. Application deadline is Monday, May 16th; the Board will review the essays and determine scholarship winners by mid-late May.
