JYC accepts applications for scholarship

The Jamestown Yacht Club will begin to accept applications for its annual Joshua Wadsworth Leonard Memorial Sailing Scholarship to an eligible person between the ages of 8 and 14. The scholarship will go towards education and training of nautical avocations.

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, at the Block Island Weekend and the JYC annual cruises, and frequently participated in the Fools’ Rule Regatta. The intent is to help provide sailing lessons for someone so they can enjoy the ocean as much as Joshua did.

Applications are available online at www.jyc.org – click on the “Download Files” link on the left side of the web site. Applications must be submitted by mail to the Jamestown Yacht Club, P.O. Box 562, Jamestown, RI 02835. Deadline is Feb. 26.
