The Women’s Sailing Foundation offers the Sue Corl Youth Sailing Scholarship for an enhanced sailing experience or program for a teenaged girl.
Enhanced Sailing Experience or program for a Teenage Girl
Elizabeth (Sue) Corl, of Marblehead, MA, a member of the Board of Directors of the Women’s Sailing Foundation (WSF), was a tireless advocate for WSF programs. Having raised two daughters and having been involved with many volunteer organizations supporting girls, Sue was thrilled to be an organizer of the first Boston AdventureSail® program which took place in Boston Harbor at Courageous Sailing Center in 1997. AdventureSail® is a nationwide program for underserved girls ages 9 to 14. Sue was also the co-chair of the inaugural Women’s Sailing Conference in Marblehead in 2001. Sue died in 2007 but she will always be remembered for her desire to introduce the sport of sailing to young girls. With her early involvement in AdventureSail® Sue sought opportunities for girls to continue to enhance their sailing and education related to sailing. In 2015, the Board established a scholarship in Sue’s memory, the Sue Corl Youth Sailing Scholarship (SCYSS).
