Renton Sailing Center is a US Sailing affiliated organization.

A warm welcome!

Founded in 1965, Renton Sailing Center, a non-profit organization, promotes the sport of sailing through classes, races, and recreational sailing at Gene Coulon Park at the south end of Lake Washington. Sailing classes begin in May and continue through the end of September. Recreational sailing, repairs, and maintenance clinics are conducted year round.


Promote the sport of sailing in the community through classes, races, clinics and recreational sailing.


Provide safe, accessible sailing for everyone in our community.

The Renton Sailing Center membership year starts in April, and lessons start in May. We feature a small boat sailing class, a keel boat class and an “Experience Sailing” day for those who have never sailed. Check this site in the spring.
