The Storm Trysail Foundation is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization dedicated to support the education of young sailors, junior safety at sea, and intercollegiate big boat racing.
The Storm Trysail Foundation educates young sailors as they bridge the gap between learning to sail and becoming accomplished blue water seamen, through a national program of events including junior safety at sea seminars and intercollegiate big boat racing.

Storm Trysail's Annual Hands-On Seminar was held Saturday, May 20, at the SUNY Maritime College at Fort Schuyler in the Bronx, NY. This is the fifth such Seminar and we continue to evolve the concept of a one day seminar to achieve World Sailing certification. We also added a level of training above the World Sailing level. Charles "Butch" Ulmer chaired this challenging event and mobilized over 60 members and an armada of boats.
