We are a group of parents, Pinellas county teachers, and youth volunteers working to help youth on the autistic spectrum ages 8-18 learn how to sail independently or with assistance. We teach to provide youths and their family a supporting group ad place for our youth sailors to learn and practice their social skills in a safe environment.
