ETYSA Scholarship Application
The Edward Teach Youth Sailing Association (ETYSA) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization based at the Blackbeard Sailing Club in New Bern, NC.
We offer a series of 1 week summer camps beginning in June providing instruction for ages 8 – 17. All abilities are welcome - from beginner sailors to those who seek more competitive racing. Camp meets from 9 until 3 daily. Participants must be able to swim and pass a swim test before they can begin sailing. Boats are provided.  
Full or partial scholarships for the program are available to those individuals with a sincere interest in sailing, and who exhibit a financial need. We are especially seeking local youth who may not have otherwise been exposed to sailing, a sport which offers camaraderie, fun, competition and the development of life-long skills.  

To apply for a scholarship, please complete this application and provide two letters of recommendation with your application from an adult (not a family member) such as a teacher, coach, or employer in support of your application for this scholarship grant. Recommendation letters may be emailed to or mailed to: 

Blackbeard Sailing Club
P.O. Box 24
Bridgeton, NC 28519
