Middle School Sailing Team

The Community Boating Center is thrilled to launch our new middle school sailing program teaching students in our community how to race.  Is your high schooler interested in sailing team? Consider Whatcom Sailing.


Beginner and intermediate Middle School Students in Whatcom County grades 6-8.  


Team fee is $300 for the Spring Season.  We do not want cost to be a barrier from participation, our scholarship program can be found here. 

Season / Practices

We practice 2 times a week Tuesday/Thursday 4:15 – 6:45, rain or shine! Our Spring Season is April 12 – June 2. Practices are held at the Community Boating Center on Bellingham Bay and we host practice in our RS Quests and our new fleet of RS Teras.

Required Gear

All sailors are required  to wear a lifejacket with a whistle, which the CBC will provide. There will also be days that we will require a wetsuit (which we can provide) or you won’t be able to sail. We strongly encourage proper gear such as gloves, booties, and no cotton (we have these available as well!). On the days we are not able to sail we will do team workouts, including cardio exercises, team members must always be prepared for running.
