Applying for things can be a bit confusing. Please make sure an adult is helping you. Besides, there are a few things your parent or guardian will have to sign.

The Asheville Youth Sailing Scholarship Application has 2 parts. 
You can complete the entire process part-by-part via snail mail or e-mail.

You can complete each part as you finish it — or wait until you have everything ready. Once your application is complete, you will receive an email. Make sure you check your email occasionally in case we have questions about your submissions. If you snail mail your forms make sure they ARRIVE by June 1st.

  1. Download the ESSAY/VIDEO form and tell us why you’d like to learn to sail! Write 500 words and submit your essay via snail mail, in an e-mail, or send a link to your unlisted YouTube video.
  2. Get a RECOMMENDATION from a teacher, a youth or church leader, or even a relative. Download the RECOMMENDATION form and snail mail it or send them this link.

If you have any questions, send an email to director (at)
