Sailing Program

The Port Angeles Yacht Club understands the value sailing and on the water experience can provide to a community.  Skills such as team work, team building, self confidence, planning and organization are just a few of the many benefits and this is why our club offers a robust sailing program.

At the heart of our program is our Junior Sailing which focuses on youth ages 12-17.  Our US Sailing Certified Coaches teach parts of a boat, boat handling, and boating safety all in a fun environment. To learn more, see our Junior Sailing Page.


Our adult lessons are offered in 4 day increments and are for any skill level, beginner to advanced coastal cruising.  Our US Sailing Certified Instructors also hold Coast Guard licenses and are knowledgeable in sailing, navigation and even our marine ecology!  To learn more visit our Learn to Sail page.


Love to sail but not interested in taking lessons? Just want to enjoy an afternoon on the Salish Sea?  Our program also offers Skippered Charters with one of our licensed instructors.  Learn more by visiting our Skippered Charters page.
