Sponsorships

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 mentor. 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.
