The Department of Parks and Recreation is excited to announce that we are
accepting proposals for RFP 7667: Sailing School and Boat Rental Operator.
Through this request for proposal (RFP), the Town is seeking a vendor to provide
sailing school instructional programming that serves the Greenwich community.
For over two decades, through partnership with a third party vendor, a
community sailing program has been an important service based at Greenwich
Point Park. In 2019, the Department contracted directly with Longshore Sailing
School Inc. to maintain the Greenwich Community Sailing operation. That
contract expired on September 30th, 2021, and following standard Town
purchasing protocols, we published this public request for proposals to secure a
new 5-year agreement.
“The events of the past two weeks have been unfortunate; however, the
Department has every intention of maintaining a community sailing program at
Greenwich Point. It is an important service in our community,” said Joe Siciliano,
Director of Parks and Recreation.
The school is located at the Town’s Chimes Building in the Greenwich Point
Park. The Department seeks a vendor and would like the school to provide
instructional opportunities from beginner to advanced levels and should have
programs targeted at both youth and adult. In addition, the vender may provide
rental boat opportunities at Greenwich Point.
All interested parties are encouraged to review the RFP, which can be found on
the Town website at https://www.greenwichct.gov/Bids.aspx. Proposals are due
by 11:00 AM on Tuesday, December 14, 2021.
This is an opportunity to provide a popular and important service to the
Greenwich community. Per the RFP, interested vendors should feel empowered
to submit alternate or additional service proposals that help accomplish the
Town’s stated goals. We hope that the Greenwich community will help us spread
to word to all possible bidders. All service providers, previous and new, are
welcome and encouraged to submit their proposal.
