West Coast Sailing is proud to support the sailing community via sponsorship of sailors, events, and organizations. Together, we're helping get more people on the water to discover the joy and passion of sailing.
Since West Coast Sailing opened in 2005, giving back has been a huge part of the company. It is our belief that the more successful a sailor, event, or group can be, the more our sport can grow. Our industry and community of dinghy sailors is too small it have it any other way. Over the years we've been able to increase our contributions of time and money, supporting sailors both here in the Northwest and in the larger sailing community. Outside the office, our staff donates hundreds of hours a year to run events, coach, and mentor. Please know that your support of our company and mission makes this possible and allows us to continue giving back to causes that directly impact small boat sailing. We're honored to have worked with so many outstanding sailors and are proud to share those experiences with you.

Request Regatta & Event Sponsorship
West Coast Sailing is proud to support the sailing community with our Regatta Sponsorship Program. We believe in supporting as many local, regional, and national events as possible rather than a few 'high profile' regattas each year. Our Regatta Sponsorship Program includes gift cards for the top three finishers in each fleet (1st, 2nd, and 3rd, with values dependent on estimated fleet size), a banner (with return label), stickers, and other giveaways (as available).
To be considered for West Coast Sailing regatta sponsorship, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with details of your event including organizers contact information, regatta dates, fleets, estimated participation, and NOR or website. Please contact us at least 4 weeks prior to your event. We make every effort to support as many events as possible.
