High School Sailing Team

For High School Students, age 13+

Our High School Sailing Team program serves students from Chimacum, Port Townsend and West Sound Academy. Our team is performance-oriented and competes on the Northwest Interscholastic Sailing Association circuit. Participants sail on 420s, FJs, and Lasers, and the team’s motto is, “Sail Fast and Have Fun!” Many team members become sailing instructors in our summer youth camps.

The sailing team is split into two groups, the development for sailors new to the sport and the travel team is for sailors who are ready to compete.

Summer Race Team | Summer Season 2024

Tuesday & Thursdays, July 2–August 15
3:30 PM–6:30 PM | Cost: $330 (a full scholarship is available to all participants thanks to the generosity of Seattle Yacht Club)

This will be a seven-week program running from the week of July 1 to the week of August 12. Over those seven weeks we will be sailing 420s and FJs, two evenings a week, with the goal of improving racing skills, and getting more time on the water during the summer. Practices will be on Tuesday and Thursday. This program is primarily aimed at youth sailors with prior sailing team experience, who want more on-the-water time and racing experience. There are 18 spots available, the price is $330 per sailor, and full scholarships are available. We look forward to seeing you out on the water.
