Welcome to the CLUB

Come experience and share the joy of sailing!

A wonderful community of sailors...

The joy of sailing is tremendously amplified when we share sailing with our families, friends, and guests. Here at Island Sailing we have the pleasure of sharing sailing in an excellent and simple way and on a scale that continues to stretch across the decades.
When you become a part of the Island Sailing community you can keep your focus entirely on creating your perfect sailing experiences while achieving your sailing goals. We simply provide the boats, take care of all the maintenance, stay available for coaching, and help anyway we can - and we get the pleasure of seeing all the smiles when you come in after a great day "out there" spent under sail.

Why it works...

Members sign up for a year at a time with monthly dues and there's no per use cost to take the boats out - as much as you'd like!
You can have one advanced reservation in place at any time - so you want to be sure you've got a boat next Saturday for example -
Then on Tuesday it's a beautiful day and you want to go for a sail? You can then do a "same day sail" by booking that morning -
You can sail each day that week if you wish!
Then when your sail on Saturday is done you can book another advanced reservation -
The model works so well thousands of members have enjoyed sailing together with Island Sailing for over 40 years!

Happy new year! I left so quickly last year I didn't get a chance to say thank you for all the great sails. You guys were all awesome and very supportive. 5 star service. I don't know when I'm getting back this year from the Middle East but when I do I'd def like to sign up again. Will stay in touch. God bless.

Island Sailing has done a great job training us with an emphasis on safety and seamanship. Through our membership, we have been able to sail on the Columbia River, the Willamette River, and the Puget Sound.... A friendly and knowledgeable staff combined with a nice selection of boats makes Island Sailing the ideal place to gain or maintain your sailing skills.... The foundational sailing skills obtained have given us the ability to sail, charter, teach and ultimately gave us the confidence to purchase our own boat.

I had an opportunity to be on my friend's sailing boat and it made me want to know about sailing. Until then, I wasn't interested in any water sports and I was even scared of water. So I decided to take the first sailing and the weekend basic sailing class at the Island Sailing. The instructor Stephen has great knowledge and lots of experience. He was willing to share it and teaching me patiently with encouragement! I learned from him so much! The Program Director Josh has been so supportive since I sent my first email to ask about classes. To start learning about sailing from 0 (sailing terminology was foreign to me at the beginning!) has been challenging. But I've started getting on a boat with a mentor and I learn every time and am more comfortable to be on a boat. That makes me happy. My decision to learn sailing was right. Josh and the instructors provide warm-welcoming atmosphere and support. Without them, I didn't think that way. Thank you so much!

For serious and low key, recreational sailors alike, Island Sailing Club can't be beat. At a fraction of what it would cost to register, maintain, insure and moor a boat, and a lot less expensive than other clubs, Island Sailing has a great selection of well maintained boats in various rigs and lengths. Probably the best part of the club are the other members - a fun, easy going group. Racing maniacs and casual puff-chasers, beginners and trans-ocean Captains, the members are great fun to spend time with on deck or in the clubhouse. The classes are taught by experienced, approachable sailors at a deep discount for members which makes Island Sailing Club a perfect opportunity for sailors trying - as I am - to get as much experience and education as possible, as quickly as possible and as economically as possible. Take a class, meet the crew, and you will be glad that you did.

I just saw that my first certification from ISC was dated 7-94. How cool is that!? It speaks a lot of the quality of ISC, and especially the excellence of the people who work there! Since the beginning it has been a huge pleasure to be part of ISC, and I have always appreciated the awesome instructions, the technical assistance, and the countless perks I had received over the years! I am very fortunate to have made so many friends among the sailing community, mostly through the Club! My heartfelt “Thank You!” to all of you!
