January Newsletter: please see our latest Newsletter here. Lots going on this month!

New - Private lessons: to provide members and people from the general public a chance to learn sailing in a safe and small environment, we have begun to offer private lessons. These lessons are $150 per hour, and are scheduled at a mutually agreeable day and time. The lessons can be for general skill building or to meet certification requirements. Please contact for more information. Any new student should provide a completed float test form.


In 2021 our Group Classes will be adjusted as necessary to provide for more videoconference chalk talks and videos and smaller group sizes allowing for household crews or singlehanded sailing for Small Boat or masked household crews for Basic Keelboat. Stay tuned for a list of classes. Most likely these classes will in May - September.

Center members - sailing restrictions. Currently we do not have open sailing days. Once we reach that point in the season, we will check with restrictions through the State of Washington to let you know what is allowed.

Ranger 20 retired. The Ranger 20 hit the rocks, literally, and suffered a terminal injury during the January 13th windstorm. The Ranger will be ground up and used for building roads, so pieces of it will still benefit other modes of transportation. Farewell, faithful friend.

Notice to Members: We'd like to ask for donations to buy a new spinnaker for the Catalina 27. Please click the donate button above if you'd like to donate.
