Aquesta Bank is excited to announce a new partnership with the North Carolina Community Sailing & Rowing Center. The center is beautifully situated on a two-acre site at Blythe Landing Park on Lake Norman in Cornelius. This is the only center of its kind in the region and the venue is perfectly suited for small craft sailing and rowing programs.
NCCSR is a 501 (c)(3) non profit corporation which operates primarily through private donors and corporate funding. Larry Vitez says, “We are so appreciative of the commitment Aquesta Bank has made to our Center and to our community with their two year sponsorship. The funds from donors and sponsors enable us to fulfill the vision we set forth a few short years ago.”
North Carolina Community Sailing & Rowing Center’s website states their vision as: 
“Education through Recreation” - Our vision is to offer all citizens of Mecklenburg and surrounding counties the opportunity to learn, experience, and enjoy the mental and physical challenges associated with the life-long sports of sailing and rowing.
The Center and its volunteer and paid staff are dedicated to:
  • Teaching sailing and rowing to youth and adults of all backgrounds and abilities.
  • Providing affordable, easily accessible, and safe sailing and rowing opportunities to all citizens.
  • Promoting sailing and rowing as competitive sports.
NCCSR’s vision and philosophy align quite nicely with that of their new found corporate sponsor. Jim Engel, President of Aquesta Bank, says he’s excited to be supporting such a wonderful program. “We are a community bank made up of folks who live, work and play in and around Lake Norman. Partnering with the Sailing & Rowing Center is just another way of showing our commitment to improving the quality of life for the residents in our community.”
Aquesta Bank is a community bank dedicated to providing quality, customized banking for the Lake Norman area. Aquesta focuses on personal financial solutions as well as those for small to medium-sized businesses. The bank has locations in Cornelius, Davidson and Mooresville, NC.
