Youth Summer Programs are in their last few weeks of a summer where we offered smaller classes.
This summer, both SRSSA educational activities and FOBH membership was effected by the Covid 19 environment. The success of Shark River Sailing and Science Academy was due to the protocols developed by our staff, and unfortunately the need to canceled regattas, social events and limiting the size of our membership. It is hoped that 2022 will be a return to normal and be a very active season.
The FOBH board and the senior staff wants to thank
Ocean First bank who rewarded FOBH with money for scholarships, these scholarships will be offered to lower income families.
We are thrilled and honored to announce that FOBH – SRSSA has been awarded West Marine’s Blue Future Grant. It is an honor to have been one of twenty seven organizations in the U.S. to receive this award. The Blue Future Grant, which is dedicated to waterlife recreation and education is very much in line with our mission. See https://www.westmarine.com/BlueFuture
We are also very appreciative to receive a generous grant from Ocean First Bank. Ocean First Bank is a longtime supporter of FOBH – SRSSA and of youth sailing and education along the Jersey Shore. http://www.oceanfirstfdn.org/
