Deadline approaching for sailing scholarship
The Jamestown Yacht Club is now accepting applications for its Joshua Wadsworth Leonard Memorial Sailing Scholarship, which is eligible for children between the ages of 8 and 14.
The award was established by Joshua’s parents, who are longtime members of the yacht club. The $200 scholarship will provide sailing lessons for a youngster who would like to enjoy the ocean as much as Joshua did.
Forms are available at both the Lawn Avenue and Melrose Avenue schools, or online at JYC.org. Applications must be submitted by March 5 by mail to Jamestown Yacht Club, P.O. Box 562, Jamestown, RI 02835.
