Since West Coast Sailing opened in 2005, giving back has been a huge part of the company. It is our belief that the more successful a sailor, event, or group can be, the more our sport can grow. Our industry and community of dinghy sailors is too small it have it any other way. Over the years we've been able to increase our contributions of time and money, supporting sailors both here in the Northwest and in the larger sailing community. Outside the office, our staff donates hundreds of hours a year to run events, coach, and montor. Please know that your support of our company and mission makes this possible and allows us to continue giving back to causes that directly impact small boat sailing. We're honored to have worked with so many outstanding sailors and are proud to share those experiences with you.
Title Sponsorship - Isabella Bertold and "Sailing Towards Rio"
West Coast Sailing has committed to a four year sponsorship of Canadian Sailing Team member Isabella Bertold. This includes a new boat, sails, gear, and anything else she may need to sail her best. Over the next four years, Isabella will be working towards winning a World Championship and a medal at the 2016 Summer Olympics. Isabella is an outstanding sailor and individual, both on and off the water, and we're proud to support her. We're excited to follow her progress and invite you to do the same by visiting her website - http://isabellabertold.com/
West Coast Sailing Ambassador Program
The goal of the West Coast Sailing Ambassador Program is to select several sailors who exhibit both talent and a Corinthian spirit in their passion to achieve notable sailing success. Sailors are selected on an annual basis at the end of each calendar year.
