Your support is essential to our mission!

Many thousands of students & hundreds of volunteers have sailed with us. We work with school and community programs serving at-risk students, as well as with N. California county juvenile probation departments. Photos are of students, volunteers, coordinators, and boats of BWF.

Sailing with Camp Sweeney

Our newest program involves working with the Alameda County Probation Department and youths currently at Camp Sweeny, a facility in San Leandro in which convicted youths are given the opportunity in a camp like setting to make their way back to society.

A Testimonial

Our school group took an AMAZING sailing trip recently with 10 boys — 9 of whom had never been sailing or on the Bay before, including two were not sure what sailing was :). The Blue Water volunteers complemented our students so well, and the the trip was truly transformational.
