Oakcliff Sailing Center owns 105 boats. Nacra 17s, 49ers, beautiful wooden boats, Waszps, Swedish Match 40s, Melges 24s, powerboats, turbo-charged Farr 40s, and more. Oakcliff’s mission is to develop leaders in the sport. One of the ways the organization instills those leadership traits is through boat maintenance. Harken Blockheads went there and met some of the key personalities involved.
