SUBIC SAILING SCHOOL
The Subic Sailing Club in partnership with the Philippine Sailing Association (PSA) and the International Yachting Fellowship of Rotarians (IYFR) have established a sailing school in Subic Bay Freeport Zone to promote sailing as a sport, a hobby, a fitness regimen, and as a career.
The IYFR has provided thru its grants program the acquisition of some of its training boats not just to teach people especially the out of school youth to learn how to sail, but also provide a means of livelihood to become as boat boys, able and competent sailors and knowledgeable crew of various yachts local and abroad when they grow up. The Philippines is a maritime country and seafaring comes naturally to Filipinos. In fact, the country is the top source of seafarers who man merchant shipping vessels throughout the world.
The grassroots program helps ensure the future of yacht racing as well as the commercial maritime industry. Students can experience sailing from dinghies to larger keelboats. The sailing programs will better equip students to deal with the demands of a career at sea - whether as a crew on an ocean racer or a seaman on a bulk carrier.
