Jamestown, RI – February 6, 2024 — Conanicut Island Sailing Foundation (CISF) announces a significant new partnership with Lila Delman Compass for sponsorship of its summer 2024 season of Community Free Sailing.

The Lila Delman Compass sponsorship will support multiple opportunities throughout the summer of 2024 for people of all ages to get on the water and learn how to sail at no charge to participants through CISF’s Community Free Sailing Program. 

“After moving back home to Jamestown 14 years ago, and as an active member of the Jamestown community, I have seen first-hand how CISF has enriched and impacted my sons’ lives through their participation in the program”, commented Molly McDonough, Sales Associate in Lila Delman Compass’ Jamestown Office. “Lila Delman Compass’s commitment and contribution to the CISF program will enrich the lives of many by supporting the Foundation’s mission — offering families and youths equal access through the free sailing program. I am proud to be a part of the Lila Delman Compass Team.” 

Community Free Sailing is one of CISF’s longest running programs and has enabled hundreds of Jamestown residents and visitors to enjoy the bay and learn to sail since the program launched in 2006.  This new partnership with Lila Delman Compass will help CISF to continue successfully delivering the popular program to the Jamestown community.

Meg Myles, CISF’s Executive Director, expressed enthusiasm about the partnership, stating, “We are delighted to join forces with Lila Delman Compass to continue making the joy of boating accessible to our community. This partnership underscores our commitment to providing unique opportunities for people to learn and engage with Narragansett Bay.”
