Island Sailing School & Club was founded in 1979 and for over forty years we’ve been training sailors ever since. We are located on the edge of The Mighty Columbia in Portland, Oregon. We are dedicated to creating a space and environment in which we strive to empower and inspire the emerging or growing sailor to best achieve their own sailing goals. Island Sailing continues to improve and create opportunities for anyone in pursuit of what we believe to be the most empowering experience, sailing.
 
As an American Sailing Association Certification Facility, our focus is to provide the best possible training and coaching by U.S. Coast Guard licensed captains for sailors to practice great seamanship and develop the skills needed to truly enjoy sailing. As seasoned ASA certified instructors, our captains apply careful attention to each individual’s desires and learning styles to keep the focus on their goals.
Over decades, our fun, adventurous, and interactive community has built a place to hone their sailing skills, create lifelong friendships and most importantly share their passion for sailing.
