Seattle Sailing Committee

Seattle Sailing Committee

Seattle Mountaineers sailing committee is dedicated to sharing our passion for sailing in the waters of the greater Seattle area and beyond.

The Mountaineers Sailing program has been getting Mountaineers Members sailing for over 30 years by matching Mountaineer members with sailboats with Mountaineer Sailing Crew in the Seattle and Puget Sound area.

Mountaineer members on the Crew List can sign-up for sailing trips.  To qualify as a Crew Member a Mountaineer can either successfully take the crew class (usually taught in the spring) or if a member has boating experience and boating safety education they can challenge into the Crew List.

The sailboats in the Mountaineer Sailing program are not owned by the Mountaineers but are all privately owned by the skippers.  The boats range in length from 26 feet to 44 feet.

There is no charge for the trips but crew members may be ask to bring food to share with the others.



2017 Mountaineers Crew/SAILING Class Registration NOW Open

                         Students Practicing Sailing Skills in Class

Registration for the 2017 Mountaineers Crew Class is now open. We have new instructors this year and the class will be better than ever! The class starts Tuesday April 4, 2017 and runs for five weeks. The class will meet on four evenings with an additional at the dock session on a sailboat during week three. The class also includes at least two on-the-water sails during May and June.

Successful completion of the class and the assigned crew tasks will qualify the student as part of the Mountaineers Sailing Crew qualifications, which will let you signup for Mountaineers sailing trips with Mountaineers skippers.

The class is designed for people that have never been on a sailboat before as well as a good review for those who have sailed in the past and want to brush up on their skills before getting back sailing.
