The Warrior Sailing Program, RI Red Cross Armed Services Families and Edward Oliver Sanchez III "Tad" Youth Sailing Fund
The Warrior Sailing Program is dedicated to maritime education for wounded, ill and injured service members of the US military. We facilitate opportunities, communicating experiences and building partnerships between the military and marine communities while eliminating the barriers to entry and promoting continued engagement.
The RI Red Cross Service to Armed Forces Fund is a local charity. This charity assists servicemen and servicewomen and their families to prevent, prepare for, and respond to emergencies. Also the RI Red Cross Service ensures that current and eligible former service members have ready access to emergency communications, case management services, and finally emergency financial assistance.
Edward Oliver Sanchez III "Tad" Fund for Youth Sailing at Sail Newport
Growing up on the waterfront in New Bedford and Block Island, our dear friend, Tad had a lifelong love for the sea and everything it represented. The “Edward Oliver Sanchez, III Youth Sailing Program at Sail Newport” fund is being developed at Sail Newport. In keeping with Tad’s spirit for recreational and competitive sailing, this fund will provide the youth in our community the opportunity to experience and sail on many different types of sailboats.
Tad was a team member of some of the world’s most magnificent racing yachts ever built such as: “Titan”, “Harrier”, ”Shockwave”, “Interlodge”, “Akela”, “Encore” and “Laura (KZ-5)”. Tad has supported numerous Sail Newport efforts over the years and this memorial fund will live out his passion.
While his journey was shorter than anticipated, he was always with tightly trimmed sails, spinnaker up on a warm summer breeze, with all flags proudly flying, yours for a fair tide.
