Greetings Sailing Community,

The safety of our members, guests, and lesson participants is our utmost priority. The board has developed a plan to begin offering limited sailing opportunities that follow the State of Washington's Phased Approach to Recovery and best management practices of the sailing community.

In Phase 1 Advanced Members may sail single-handed or with members of their immediate household.

In Phase 2 Beginner and Intermediate Sailors may sail in a limited Open Sailing opportunity or with a Mentor provided that contact with others outside one's household does not exceed 5 contacts per week.

In Phase 3 We will resume activities such as sailing instruction, skill/building racing, and open sailing, that gather less than 50 participants.

Members must read and agree to the Plan and it's conditions for cleaning and sanitation, personal protective gear, and physical distance before sailing.


John Padgett

Board President
