Seeking Support for a donated sailboat and berth

A generous couple in Santa Barbara… as previously reported here in our blog… has offered to donate a 25’ sailboat complete with a berth (slip) in the Santa Barbara Harbor. SOFTIN is seeking financial support to take possession of this wonderful service resource which we plan to use to provide sailing adventures to deserving people with disabilities, impairments, victims of abuse, frail elderly and youths-at-risk.

I estimate the combined value of the sailboat and slip to be $26,000. The first-year costs are estimated to be $15,000. In subsequent years, the costs will drop to a fraction of the first year costs, so the value will still be strongly positive, in terms of dollars and cents. In terms of service to the special-needs people we serve, the continuing value will be… well, priceless.

SOFTIN invites you to help,

Capt. David Bacon
Executive Director,

PS: We do not charge our special needs passengers. Our work is to benefit them.
