Apply now for JYC scholarship

The Jamestown Yacht Club annually awards the Joshua Wadsworth Leonard Memorial Sailing Scholarship to an eligible person between the ages of 8 and 14.

This $200 scholarship was established by one of the Jamestown Yacht Club’s active members in memory of their son.

Joshua could always be found sailing with his family, including Block Island Weekend and the JYC annual cruises. He frequently participated in the Fools’ Rules Regatta and his entries were always inventive and fun. He loved being on the water and his energy and enthusiasm made his family and friends smile.

The scholarship’s intent is to help provide sailing lessons for someone so they can enjoy the ocean as much as Joshua did.

Applications are available at the Jamestown School or online at www.jyc.org. Applications must be submitted by mail to the Jamestown Yacht Club, P.O. Box 562, Jamestown, RI 02835, no later than March 5.
