More About Our Company

The Jamie Boeckel Memorial Foundation was established in 2002 shortly after the sudden and tragic passing or our friend, brother, and son, Jamie, in a yacht racing accident while performing Bowman duties aboard Blue Yankee on Long Island Sound. The mission of the fund is to preserve Jamie’s memory through various charitable endeavors that reflect the adventurous and generous spirit of a young sailor who seized life with an unabashed spirit and offered friendship to all those with whom he came in contact.

Our efforts are twofold in nature. We are providing an annual scholarship award to benefit economically challenged students. The Fund targets those students involved in competitive sailing that have presented the ability to excel in a higher education environment that have not had the support or resources necessary to prepare them for the challenges of college.

Additionally we are supporting ongoing efforts to promote safety at sea, targeting youth sailing in order to introduce and instill the proper regard for personal safety while on the water. We have developed a program to award custom life vests to deserving young sailors based on conduct and merit. We anticipate developing other such programs as the Fund evolves. The fund is dependent on your generosity and support in order to continue the efforts that we know would make Jamie proud.
