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 Club 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. Learn more about Island Sailing »
