Our team is also available via phone and email and, for those in the Portland area, in person at our showroom.

We pick, pack, and ship orders Monday through Friday, with the exception of special store hours as listed above. In stock orders typically ship within 1 business day. Our daily cut off is 12 pm, meaning that orders placed after this time may not ship the same day. Our team will make every effort to prioritize expedited orders placed in the afternoon but these shipments are not guaranteed to go out if placed after 12 pm. Automated tracking number emails are send when order labels are generated. Please allow up to 24 hours for tracking information to be updated.
West Coast Sailing uses both USPS and FedEx for shipping parts orders, with various freight carriers were specified for items designated as 'Freight'. For service delays related to USPS and FedEx, please check the following links:
October 1st, 2020: US Postal Service (USPS) is reporting delays on many residential deliveries, adding 1-3 days of transit time. In practical terms, this means shipments that normally deliver in 1-2 days may deliver in 3-4, shipments that normally deliver in 3-4 days may now deliver in 5-6 days, etc. This is affecting all shippers who rely on USPS to provide what is typically quick and cost effective shipping and beyond our direct control. Orders placed with our 'Standard Shipping' method are often shipped via USPS and may have a few extra days of transit time on route to the address of delivery. Where possible we are moving shipments to other carriers but cannot guarantee this for all orders.
Our website is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, for your convenience in finding the right sailing parts and placing orders. Our team monitors the site for occasional outages and works to address any and all issues as quickly as possible.
Following guidance from the Oregon governor issued May 15th, our showroom in Portland is now open with limited capacity. We've added a roped off area inside the entrance and will allow a maximum of three customers (or households of up to three members) inside at a time. Floor markings will prompt proper social distancing. A West Coast Sailing staff member will be able to pick and show items for you. Customers visiting to look at new sailboats or kayaks will be able to do so with assistance from a staff member. All visitors are strongly encouraged to wear face masks, as our staff is required to do, to protect yourself and others. We will have a limited number of disposable masks available plus a range of hand sanitizer and cleaning products to ensure your shopping experience is as safe as possible. If possible, we still encourage you to call ahead to place orders to minimize time in our showroom, but we are here and available to assist you whatever your needs may be. Please contact us with any questions or concerns about these policies.
