Welcome to our new Sail Orcas Registration process hosted by UltraCamp.Upcoming Registration High School and Middle School Racing
With the close of summer, Sail Orcas is switching its focus to support competitive youth sailing at the high school and middle school level. We welcome all Orcas students 7th through 12th grade with an interest in continuing their sailing progression to join us this Fall for local practices and competitive opportunities. Practices will be held twice a week after school, with opportunities to travel regionally for regattas, clinics, or joint practices with other teams.
We primarily sail the double-handed Flying Junior (FJ), a 13ft dinghy with two sails. Additionally, we will have Laser Radials and Laser 4.7s to accommodate additional sailors in smaller single-handed boats.
Teams compete within the Washington and Oregon district known as NWISA, and come Spring, High School sailors will have the chance to compete to win NWISA, and a spot at High School Sailing Nationals. Middle School Exploratory
We plan to host a Middle School Exploratory class through Orcas Island Middle School. Contact Ms. Kim Freeman at the Middleschool or our staff for details. Classes are Monday mornings. There is no fee for joining this Exploratory, and the program is supported by donations and community outreach.Women's Learn to Sail

Watch our Facebook page for additional special events, races, or clinics this summer.
Depending on how Covid-19 affects our classes, we may need to cancel or reduce class sizes, (or modify the skill of a class). Please bear with us if this happens. If we need to reduce class sizes, class enrollment will be based upon the order in which students registered. Refunds for paid classes will be provided if your class spot can be filled off the waiting list. Our UltraCamp software should allow us to organize and email notifications more nimbly, and modify classes if required as the summer progresses.
We are also trying out a new fundraiser Merch site.Check out Sail Orcas merchandise here.
