Similar story here too Tom Ray.
The program I have been volunteering with for 3 years was started back in the 70's by an old sailor/school teacher named Ward Bell. Ward is not with us anymore but his program lives on (not likely up to his taste in seamanship!) and his replacement may be looking for a replacement soon too.
These kinds of programs run on the power of the people that volunteer only. The village pays for the insurance for the sailing program to happen but it wouldn't happen without the volunteers. The families in that school district pay $25 for 3 weeks of 'lessons', M-F, 9 am - noon which is laughable but precludes paying instructors so they've been able to get some volunteers.
