Training Northwest Sailors for over 36 years: Island Sailing programs blend advances in sailing education with "salty" practical training by many of the world's best instructors. The sailing club enables sailors to enjoy local sailing and gain experience. Adventure vacations offer opportunities for advanced training and sailing well beyond Northwest horizons.
Island Sailing School was founded in 1979 by Northwest sailors inspired to learn, explore and have fun sailing. They taught others to sail, more sailors joined and humble inspiration became a passion to create the Northwest’s best sailing school and club.
What worked then still works today: experienced instructors train students to the highest standards, sailors join our Club to sail affordably, and the fleet has grown across the Pacific Northwest. We remain inspired to learn, passionate about sailing and creating the best programs available for beginner and salty sailors. About Island Sailing »

5 / 5 rating: Basic Sailing Course with Capt. Frankland

Stephen was not just a great teacher, he really was concerned that each student understood and was competent in executing each of the skills required for the class. It was obvious within the first hour that this class was about practical application, and an introduction to proper seamanship. I will absolutely be requesting Stephen for all of my sailing classes. Thank you Stephen for a great introduction to sailing.
