An Open Door to New Opportunity
Congratulations to Stephanie Roney, Sue Corl Youth Sailing Scholarship recipient, an 15 year-old student from San Pedro High School. She was introduced to sailing during the summer of 2019 at Los Angeles Community Sailing Clinics (LACS). In her application letter she expressed her love of the water and an appreciation of the beauty of sail. Her letter of recommendation from LACS expressed the hope a bit of training would open opportunities to Stephanie, such as participating in a local sailing team. “This would be a wonderful outcome for Stephanie and the yachting community.”
Upon receiving the scholarship, Stephanie wrote, “With great pleasure and gratitude, I accept this award. I will do my best to exemplify the honored values of women in sailing. Not only will I not disappoint you, but I will make every effort to exceed your expectations.”
As the Sue Corl Youth recipient, Stephanie plans to further her sailing experiences at the Cabrillo Beach Youth Sailing Foundation this summer. The Foundation offers all youngsters in the community the experience of sailing, develops skills and confidence hand-in-hand with good seamanship and the Corinthian yachting tradition of equality, fairness, determination and gracious competition.
