Cobra Marine donates to children’s sailing program

Cobra Marine recently donated its MR HH330 Floating VHF Radios and a MR F80B Fixed VHF Radio to Massachusetts-based Sail Salem to help support its youth sailing programs.

“We're proud to work with Sail Salem and bring safe boating to a new generation,” Cobra Electronics senior vice president of marketing and sales Sally Washlow said in a statement. “Sail Salem is a great program for kids to learn about sailing and develop confidence. We're glad to provide some of the tools they need to make this program a success.”

Sail Salem is an educational program for children that promotes positive life skills and values through the sport of sailing. The organization has grown from 200 children to almost 400 during the last three years.

Sail Salem charges $1 a child for the program.
