The Sea Sprite Association was formally incorporated in Rhode Island as a non-profit organization in 2012. Its mission statement included in the Articles Of Incorporation states that the purpose for which the corporation is organized is “To promote interest and participation in the Sea Sprite class of sailing boats, including but not limited to coordinating racing events.” The mission statement is expanded in the By-Laws to state that “Activities shall include but are not limited to coordinating racing and cruising, social, cultural, and educational events.” The Association is currently not at a 501-3c entity, and therefore does not accept tax-free donations. The initial incorporators were Bob Catani, Herb Browne, and Carter Hall.
The Association pays expenses by relying on membership dues and donations. The list of the current Board Of Directors as well as the current Association By-Laws are attached as sub-menus.
