Each year individuals from businesses support the Courageous Sailing Summer Youth Program by racing on a company-sponsored boat in the Corporate Challenge. Roux will compete with our company name and logo proudly emblazoned on our boat’s jib sail, while sponsoring 6 children for the week-long Youth Program Sailing 101 course. Courageous Sailing serves 1,000 children each year, most of whom would not otherwise have the opportunity to learn to sail or experience the ocean. The program strives to open up Boston’s youngest generation to the beauty of the ocean, the possibility of maritime careers, and the importance of preserving our environment.
Monday, May 23 marks Roux’s first sail for the 2016 season, where our boat will sail off of Pier 4 in the Charlestown Navy Yard for some fast-paced, college-style, short course keelboat racing.
