JOHN DANIEL MEEHAN YOUTH SAILING SCHOLARSHIP FUND

Named for a man who was instrumental in transforming St. Augustine Race Week into a city-wide top-tier event, the John Daniel Meehan (JDM) Youth Sailing Scholarship Fund brings the joy of sailing to underprivileged kids all across the NorthEast Florida region. Scholarship recipients have all fees paid so they may attend one of the summer sailing camps run by First Coast Sailing Association member clubs.
sarw youth scholarshipEach year, member clubs reach out to community organizations seeking youngsters ages 6 to 18 who wish to participate. Many of the kids have never been in a sailboat or a boat of any kind. At local yacht clubs the kids learn all the basics of sailing in small boats and have a ton of fun as well. Perhaps some of these kids will sail in a future St. Augustine Race Week.
Young people who receive JDM Youth Sailing Scholarships will attend one of the Sailing Camps run by St. Augustine Yacht Club, Florida Yacht Club, The Rudder Club of Jacksonville, Smyrna Yacht Club or Halifax Youth Sailing.
This will be the sixth year of the scholarship program and we’re aiming to serve around three dozen kids. If you know of a worthy youngster for the program, just contact the JDM Youth Scholarship Committee at one of the Yacht Clubs named above.

What is a 420?

There are two types of 420 Dinghies. One is known as the International 420 Class Dinghy, the other is known as the 420 One-Design. It’s the latter version will be sailed in the St. Johns TDC Youth Sailing Regatta. The International 420, unlike the 420 One-Design has a spinnaker and optional trapeze making it a far more demanding boat to sail and race. The International 420 class is recognized by the International Sailing Federation and raced all over the world. The name comes from its 4.2 meter overall length . In feet that’s 13 feet 9 inches. But who wants to sail a 139?

The type of boat being sailed in the St. Johns TDC Youth Sailing Regatta is the other type of 420 known as 420 One-Design. It is slightly stronger, heavier and more simply rigged boat than the “International” version so no spinnaker and no trapeze and fewer sail trimming strings to pull. The simpler rig is designed to be sailed easily and safely by younger sailors. Throughout North America it has become very popular at yacht clubs and junior sailing organizations for training and youth racing programs.
