The TISC J/24 fleet is sporting newly-painted hulls and crisp graphics thanks to Bay Marine Boatworks and Signarama San Jose. This project was funded by the 34th America’s Cup and ONESF. Summer smiles now available for all San Francisco youth.
Delos and Barney headed for Bay Marine Boatworks last October. Five more Js followed. The project managers, painters and yard team delivered a class job on every boat. Even though a couple appeared as if “they had been used as rounding marks during a hard-fought regatta”, all were returned with smooth, attractive white hulls.
The team at Signarama San Jose provided design support for the bow and stern graphics as well as the registration numbers for the J/24 fleet. They guided us through the installation of the 35 unique graphics fabricated for our project, and helped us adapt the design and layout to our RS Venture and FJ fleets.
The most dramatic change was in “Ol Yeller”. Quite a difference between the before-and-after appearance. The picture on the left was taken during a Life Learning Academy field trip last year. The two below show the progress through the painting process and departing Bay Marine.
Our J/24 fleet is used for adult sailing and keelboat lessons, and for many outreach programs during the week. Here are a few smiles from a recent San Francisco Expeditionary School day at TISC, along with our new hulls with Bay Marine Boatworks and graphics from Signarama San Jose.
Registration for our Summer Classes starting June 2nd is open. We still have availability in most classes, and are always looking for kids interested in developing life skills while learning to sail and enjoy the water. The registration page for our youth summer programs is HERE. Registration page for all programs is HERE.
At TISC we never turn a child away. Our doors are always open to anyone or any group who has the desire to learn and grow through sailing. Scholarship forms are here: Individual Scholarships / Group Scholarships
