Charter Organization

Ship 5111 is a 501c3 (not-for-profit) corporation serving Chicagoland area youth with the purpose of providing safe, supervised access on our sailing

vessels, engage in meaningful service opportunities, and introduce our nation's rich maritime history along with teaching vital safety skills.

Our benefactors are current and past members of Columbia Yacht Club, and are avid sailors of all ages.  Without the talent, time, and 

treasures brought to our program, Ship 5111 would not exist. We enjoy the expertise of veteran sailors whose involvement Ship 5111 

activities, resources, and service opportunities would not be possible.
