Racing, Outreach, Organization, and Training
The purpose of the Youth Sailing Initiative is to encourage and promote the growth of youth sailing, that we believe as an activity offers a unique medium for personal growth and enrichment.
The Sailing Foundation, along with CYC, OWSA, RCYC, SYSCO, PYC and OCSA, will be offering the U.S. Sailing two-day Safety at Sea seminar on February 18 and 19, 2017 at the Marshall/Luepke Community Center in Vancouver, Washington.
Donations and several grants from supporters have enabled The Sailing Foundation to purchase two used 21-foot Zodiac Pro Open 650 boats, both with 150-horsepower engines and equipped with trailers. The boats will be used for the foundation’s clinics, practices and regattas, and will also be available for use by other sailing organizations.
On January 31st, the Sailing Foundation hosted its eighth annual Coaches Clinic for Northwest Youth Racing Programs. The clinic was held at the Mt. Baker Rowing and Sailing Center, 3800 Lake Washington Blvd, Seattle.
