Friends of Belmar Harbor presents:

Shark River Sailing & Science Academy

Monthly Announcements


FOBH is in the process of compiling a list of US Sailing Certified instructors who can provide private sailing lessons. These lessons are not a part of the SRSSA program but some of these are SRSSA staff and may be using FOBH-SRSSA boats.  We will provide more details in a few days.

Our host municipality for our sailing and most of our science programs, Belmar NJ, has informed us that the city is not going to allow any youth camps or youth recreation programs to operate during the summer of 2020.  While we may be allowed to operate based on the state and federal governments guidelines and executive orders, we still need the cooperation of our host city who is making decisions base on local concerns involving COVID19.   We know this was not an easy decision for the Belmar leadership. Because of this, we are extremely disappointed to announce that all programs are canceled for 2020. Families who have already registered will receive full refunds. 

We will use this summer to prepare for 2021, and with this time and focus we believe we can make 2021 the best year we every had.  

You may see a few of our staff and volunteers working on our boats and facilities this summer.  Please contact us if you have any interested in volunteering by sending an email to and .

The best experience I have ever had!
