The Yacht Club Partner Programme offers a unique opportunity for sailing organizations to build relationships with their members by working together to meet a combined fundraising goal. Once the organization's collective support reaches certain levels, the organization will be eligible for a separate level of benefits. Benefits will include sailing clinics conducted by members of the US Sailing Team, presentations by OSC member and renowned sailing commentator Gary JOBSON, as well as Olympic flags and photos signed by members of the 2008 U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Sailing Teams.
'The time has come for a significant and sustained fundraising effort on behalf of our Olympic athletes,' said OSC Chairman Dean BRENNER. 'Our athletes face too many hurdles in their pursuit of Olympic and Paralympic dreams and medals. Through this new and exciting programme, the Olympic Sailing Committee is taking the initiative to help our top sailors achieve those dreams. We need to build a national effort to support our top athletes of today and tomorrow.'
