Sail with the Coronado Mayor to Raise Funds for CSF

Coronado family business hosts first public event “Sail with the Mayor” to raise funds for Coronado Schools Foundation

Coronado based family business, Aolani Catamaran Sailing, is hosting its first ever public event. Typically available for private charter only, the catamaran has a capacity of 48 guests and will be hosting a sail to benefit the Coronado Schools Foundation. Coronado Mayor Richard Bailey will be attending the event along with Coronado Schools Foundation members. The two hour sail will take place on Friday, October 4th from 5:30-7:30 pm and will pick up guests at the Peohe’s dock in Coronado.

Included with the ticket are two drink tickets and appetizers by Coronado local Chef Drew of Second Nature Catering. Tickets are $110 (with discounts being offered on social media).

Aolani Catamaran Sailing is the first private charter sailing catamaran to come to San Diego, and is celebrating its 16th year in business. Long time Coronado resident Bruno Schwarz started the business in 2003. Now his two daughters, Lindsay Maphet and Shannon Lap, are both involved in the business as well. This will be Lindsay Maphet’s first public event she has hosted onboard the catamaran. Giving back to the community is very important to the company.

“The Coronado Schools Foundation is a community driven fundraising organization, which supplements state funding for two pathways in the public schools of Coronado Unified School District: STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, & Math) and Arts. Since its founding in 1982, CSF has provided a means for parents, community members and local businesses to invest in superior public education for their children in the Coronado Unified School District. Since that time, CSF has grown into a million-dollar commitment to maintain rigorous academics and a breadth of educational experiences from kindergarten through high school.” ( )

“Mayor Richard Bailey was elected to the Coronado City Council in 2012, and in 2016 at the age of 30, Richard was elected the 51st Mayor of Coronado, becoming the youngest mayor in the city’s history. As Mayor of Coronado, Richard has reduced taxes, voted against wasteful spending and supported reforms to protect taxpayers’ money which helped earn Coronado a AAA bond rating. Since being elected to the Coronado City Council in 2012, Richard has made pension reform a top priority.” (
