"YACHT, May Excitement fill your Sails and Catch the Ham Radio Wave as we Ship our Signal around the World"  Promoting the enjoyment of Ham Radio with emphasis on youth.
Sailing on to new heights.
Our purpose is to expand horizons in the field of communications along with general and advanced ham radio techniques, and to foster a greater appreciation of the role they play in the overall hobby of amateur radio, as well as giving kids a challenge and enjoyment. We have 137 members in 28 states and 4 countries.   Come sail with us, and join our echolink and HF nets. Keep youth in ham radio on a high level, now and in the future..
