Orcas Island High School

Sailing Instruction

We have operated the Jr. Sailing program on Orcas in cooperation with the Orcas Island Yacht Club for the past 25 years. This summer we had our largest enrollment ever with 140 students taking 211 sessions. We offer beginner, intermediate, and advanced sailing lesson and have retained a professional coach for the High School Sailing team. We maintain a large fleet of Flying Juniors, Bics, Optis, and Lasers to support our lessons and team racing.

Activities & Facilities

The Orcas Island Yacht Club has built a 500 sq ft sailing room for Sail Orcas youth sailing activities and we also have the use of their picnic shelter and docks. West Sound on Orcas Island is the perfect venue for youth sailing being not to big and not too small and it has little marine traffic to disrupt lessons and racing.

Use of Funds

We are struggling to fund the state mandated replacement of our dinghy docks on West Sound and we will be fundraising for that need for the foreseeable future.
