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

Just wanted to send you a quick note to let you know that I am retiring from my position as Chief Juvenile Probation Officer. One of the highlights of my 30 year career in probation has been the partnership with the Blue Water Foundation. Your commitment to providing exposure to sailing on the SF Bay to youth in the juvenile justice system is unprecedented and amazing for San Francisco and Bay Area youth! Thank you for believing in us and our kids!

Allen Nance, SF Chief Juvenile Probation Officer
