National Sailing Hall of Fame - STEM Sailing

The STEM Sailing Initiative is a significant part of the National Sailing Hall of Fame's mission to engage sailing's next generation. In addition, we believe the STEM Sailing Initiative will make an important contribution to the national STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math) program, thereby enhancing the future research, engineering and high-tech U.S. workforce.
