We are inviting you to an unique event to be held on Sunday September 13, 2015. An afternoon of sailing on Biscayne Bay in partnership with Shake-A-Leg of Miami.
In our more than 30 year history it will be a first to partner with an unique community outreach program in South Florida. Shake-A-Leg is a sailing school reaching out to more than 10,000 minority and disabled children and adults offering them a program to get acquainted with marine life through an extensive sailing program. To teach young students to sail gives them self esteem while having a fun time. Shake-A-Leg was founded by Harry Horgan, who himself is wheelchair bound after a car accident 25 years ago. The United States Coastguard has granted them the use of their terminal building and the harbor. Shake a leg has sail & motor boats, catamarans, paddle boards and kayaks. The government has also granted them the use of an island in the Bay. This Island is fully handicapped accessible and can accommodate many to swim at their beach.
Shake-A-Leg is making all of their facilities available to the N.A.S.F. to invite our members to come and sail, visit the island, swim and enjoy other water activities as of 2 PM. After our “sailing”, refreshments and a barbeque will be served.
Our board of the N.A.S.F. is very excited about this unique opportunity and initiative and we would like to invite you to join us with your family and friends. The Netherlands Consulate General in Miami, Nathalie Olijslager, is also joining us with her family. We request a small donation of $35 per adult. This includes all ctivities, refreshments and the barbecue. Children will be able to participate at no charge and can earn community service hours when they attend to this event. Your donation will defray our expenses and will also allow us to make a donation to Shake a Leg in support to their important outreach community programs.
