Community Sailing - Seeking Flying Scot - Donation - Tax Deductible Non-Profit
Friends of Yellow Creek runs a small, low-cost community sailing program at Yellow Creek State Park in Penn Run, PA. We are seeking one serviceable, early model Flying Scot. The boat doesn't need to be pretty. Does it float? Is it free of balsa core damage? Does it have unbent spars? We can do minor repairs. We can upgrade rigging We'll be happy to help you free that garage space! Pickup within 400 miles of Pittsburgh PA ... assuming road worthy trailer.
Our several volunteers teach two-dozen new sailors each season. We currently use two Oday Javelins. Based on experience with our neighbors (Moraine Sailing Club Learn to Sail), we think that a Flying Scot would be an ideal instructional platform.
Friends of Yellow Creek is a chapter of the non-profit, Pennsylvania Parks and Forests Foundation. Donations are tax-deductible.
