Fortunato Gordon Scholarship Fund
Fortunato was a passionate and inspiring instructor who taught for HRCS in its early years. Self reliant and funny, Fortunato loved to teach and bring sailing to children who would not otherwise have the opportunity. He always took the extra effort to connect with kids, make them feel special, and figure out how to engage and interest them. The Fortunato Gordon Scholarship Fund allows children with financial need to attend our summer City Sail program. City Sail is a week-long program that brings kids from across NYC, and across socio-economic backgrounds, onto the Hudson for an intensive week of sailing, leadership development, and fun.
