Ron Lester Scholarship

Ron Lester was a generous teacher and fierce competitor, dominating the MCYC race course for many years. The Junior Sail Scholarship is his legacy that MCYC is honored to offer. For those that are awarded the scholarship, tuition is waived and the required life jacket is provided. Applicants must be able to swim.

Interested candidates are invited to submit an essay of 300 words or less describing: what about sailing and Lake Michigan interests them; what they hope to learn; and how they believe they will benefit from the opportunity. Special attention will be paid to applicants that otherwise would not have means to enroll in Junior Sail. Applications should be emailed to and essays must be in the form of an attached document. Include parent/guardian’s contact information, along with the name and age of the student. Applications will not be accepted after July 15, 2020.
