US Sailing MVP Program

We are so fortunate to belong to a great Club like Youngstown Yacht Club . This is where we enjoy sailing, racing, powerboating and just being near the water. We have the pleasure of seeing children grow up with the chance to develop that same passion, while enjoying good friends with a shared interest.

Thankfully, we have a strong partner in US Sailing. Their efforts to expand participation and provide excellence in training, education and race management are critical to the future of the sport. They are committed to building participation at the local level, and I want to help them do so.

US Sailing is offering a partnership with clubs and Youngstown Yacht Club is joining this partnership. Everyone wins with this Partnership:

  • You will receive a discount on your US Sailing Membership ($10 discount for individuals, $5 discount for youths, $15 discount for families)
  • Youngstown Yacht Club receives a $10 credit ($5 for youths) for every one of our members who join and renew as part of the Partnership. We can use these credits to pay for ANY US Sailing training and educational program, in turn we will be able to:
    • Train more instructors, race officials and coaches
    • Present safety at sea seminars, racing rules seminars and race management seminars
    • Send attendees to leadership forums, yacht club symposiums, judges seminars
    • Offer classes on coastal cruising, offshore passage making and navigation

The more YYC members that participate, the more high quality programs can be offered to YYC and the Youngstown Junior Sailing.

  • A potential option that we will be working on is to include US Sailing join or renewal dues to your monthly membership invoice.
  • The sport of sailing grows stronger.¬†Access to excellence in training and education benefits every sailor in the country. Fair and well-run races, safer waterways, skilled racers and confident cruisers all ensure a lifetime of participation and fun for every sailor.

Some of you are already a US Sailing member. Thank you for supporting the sport. When your US Sailing membership comes up for renewal, we hope that you will renew through the Youngstown Yacht Club MVP Program to receive a discount on your membership and to strengthen the sailing programs at our club.

If you are not a current US Sailing member, I encourage all of you to join US Sailing through this program. As sailors, it is important to support their mission to grow the sport while at the same time expand the programs YYC can offer locally to our members. To join, complete the enclosed form and return to US Sailing in the envelope provided. Or, you may also join online at ussailingmvp.com/Youngstown. Meanwhile, if you have any further questions, please feel free to contact Commodore Jason Suitor.
