2016 marks the 25th Anniversary of Sail Martha’s Vineyard! The Vineyard Cup, begun 11 years ago, brings in the revenue to afford our programs which have expanded to reach more than 400 kids each year for our summer sailing program alone. Our educational offerings have grown as well, with Maritime Studies and scholarships at the high school level and courses, licenses, rowing, films and lectures to serve our youth well into adulthood.
Walter Cronkite was a founder of Sail MV, an Honorary Director, and was there to help us over the years. He attended many a Seafood Buffet and Auction. He was our Honorary Commodore at our first Vineyard Cup, in his yacht ‘Wyntje’. He had always said that our organization was a quintessential Martha’s Vineyard organization, home grown and home supported, and that Sail MV was preserving our maritime culture through the education of our children, endowing them with the knowledge and skills for their life time.
Sail MV is committed to our community and by supporting and participating in the Vineyard Cup, YOU allow us to do what we do.
Attend our many events this weekend to help us celebrate our achievements of 25 years, and have a great time in doing so. Join us to see what we offer year round!
Our most gracious thanks
