SOFTIN receives funding from Santa Barbara Yacht Club Women

Santa Barbara Yacht Club Women Foundation donated $1,200 to SOFTIN to fund educational adventures for special-needs kids. SOFTIN will work with collaborating organizations to identify recipients, based upon needs assessment or reward system, who will benefit from learning about the waterfront, various vessel types, ocean-related career opportunities, marine mammals, sea and shore birds, marlinspike seamanship, fishing, marine resource management, water quality management, marine debris prevention and the concept of becoming trusted shipmates.

The rewards of these educational adventures are profound and meaningful and SOFTIN thanks the Santa Barbara Yacht Club Women for making such adventures possible.

Capt. David Bacon
Executive Director,
Seafaring Opportunities For Those In Need (SOFTIN), Inc.
