The next BoatU.S. Foundation grant deadline is in early 2009, but before then you could check out the Waterfront Challenge, a new contest sponsored by Interlux. Any group of three people or more with a project executed between April and October could win a share of $60,000 in awards spread across seven regions-from the Pacific Northwest to the Caribbean. One of our contributing editors, Douglas Bernon, directs the program and says this is a great chance to educate young sailors, clean beaches, and rebuild water-access facilities. Nonprofits, clubs, or even a small family with a good idea can enter. I can't enter, because Douglas invited me to be a Waterfront Challenge judge, along with Ruth Wood and several others, but I hope you will.
