Seattle Sailing Club
For more than 45 years, Seattle Sailing Club has made sailing into both a sport and a social event. Club members have access to a fleet of over 30 sailboats, from small keelboats to 40-footers, which they can take out on Puget Sound at their leisure. Membership levels allow for unlimited day sailing or a pay-as-you-go arrangement, as well as overnight sailing for captains who have memorized where all the stop signs are. New sailors and weathered seadogs alike can sign up for lessons taught by licensed instructors, as well as pick up the latest gear. And the club emphasizes the community aspect of boating as well—members frequently come together for races, parties, and group flotillas.
