About High School Sailing

Enrollment in high school sailing is open to students attending any Portland/Vancouver area high school, public or private. Previous sailing experience is recommended but not required. All participants must be able to swim, commit to regular practices, and provide their own life jackets and appropriate sailing clothing. Parents are expected to share in the volunteer duties at weekend regattas.

420’s and Lasers will both be utilized by this program on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. The boat you sail will be determined by the team coaches. The boat you will sail at practice will be based on interest, attitude, dedication, attendance, and upcoming regattas.
