Announcing ASA’s “Sail for Hands” Events In Honor of Our 30th Anniversary

Category : Schools

sail for handsDo you like sailing? Or barbeques? Or how about a nice glass of wine, beer, or rum, after sailing? ASA and its network of schools are hosting fun sailing events this summer and fall that cover all of those categories, and even better, it’s all for a good cause. In celebration of our 30th Anniversary, we’re continuing our work to benefit Hands Across the Sea.

Hands Across the Sea is dedicated to raising the literacy levels of the Caribbean children by shipping new books and school supplies and working with students, principals, teachers and volunteers to create school community borrowing libraries and reading programs across the Eastern Caribbean. Last year, ASA hosted a sweepstakes and raised $18,000!
fun in the sun
When you register for a “Sail for Hands” event, you will pay a registration fee of your choice, with all proceeds going directly to Hands Across the Sea. That money will directly improve the lives of children throughout the Caribbean–and then you get to have a great time!

How to Participate

Contact your local ASA sailing school to see if they’re hosting a “Sail for Hands” event this year. (Are you a school owner? Email ASA’s Marketing Director, Lisa Carrington, to set up an event at your school.)
