Wrapping up 2022
Posted by Jeanette Fitzgibbons (Staff) on Dec 14th 2022
What a year it's been! A lot sure has happened this year at West Coast Sailing and we are honored to have had you along for the ride. At the end of the day, our main objective and the reason behind everything we do is to better serve our sailors and kayakers by making it easy and enjoyable to get on the water.
Join us in a bit of reminiscing of our year's highlights, as we close out 2022 and look forward to 2023!
HELPED soooo many sailors & kayakers!
We shipped over 22,000 packages from our WCS warehouse this year, with many more shipped direct from our suppliers' warehouses. We helped over 17,000 different customers, and sold and delivered over 400 boats!
