NW Youth Sailing is part of the Sailing Foundation. As a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, The Sailing Foundation relies on the support of local businesses, organizations, and generous individuals who share a passion for youth sailing and improving safety. The organizations below have all made a commitment to youth sailing. If you would like to be a sponsor please contact us.
Founded almost ten years ago and started by a few dedicated Northwest College Sailing alumni, WCS is your place to go for dinghy sailing gear and hard to find parts. They also deal in new and used boats. Their friendly customer service team strives to ensure your next sailing experience is a good one. They have been an annual supporter of the Northwest Youth Racing Circuit and are at many of the local youth events.
The SYC Foundation is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization. The Foundation's purpose is to promote interest and participation in boating activities and programs, with particular emphasis on young people. Financial support is provided to a broad range of educational, training, and competitive endeavors.
The NMTA is made up of industry professionals and serves the great community of boaters. They have given numerous grants to local youth sailing programs over the year, including The Sailing Foundation. They have specifically supported our outreach efforts at the Seattle Boat Show and our Youth Sailing Open House.
48 North is the magazine that sailors in the Northwest have been turning to for decades. They regularly feature updates on youth sailing and are big supporters of our outreach efforts. You can find them online or stores/yacht clubs. Just like the wind, it's FREE!
US Sailing is the National Governing Body for our sport. We try our best to support their effort and initiatives, as they do ours. From youth racing, to instructor training, to clinics and Olympic sailing they are essential to the health of our sport. Our youth director serves as a representative to several committees and works closely with the staff in Rhode Island.
