Upcoming Regattas


There are many regattas fast approaching that you should all plan on attending.

Bellingham Youth Regatta
Our local event on the bay, this one will bring in many good sailors in Optis, Lasers and FJs.  If you haven't already, register online here.
We also need someone to draw a tshirt design for this event!

McCurdy Cup
I know of two teams so far: 
Team 1: Miles, Elise, Robyn, Elsa (Sat), Jack, Lisa, Riley G. 
Team 2: Liam, Riley A, Victoria, Jeffrey, Ryan, ???
Who else?  Liam and Elsa are organizing the teams, so contact them if you plan on going.  And I think more drivers are needed so if you can drive let them know.  Steve Hood will be chaperoning and the team is staying at Steve's fathers house.

NW Junior Olympics

After that the high school season starts.  Practices are tentatively set to start on Aug 28th.  Earlier this year to take advantage of the nice weather.  First race is Singlehand Champs Sep 1-2 in the Gorge.

HS Sailing Team Boat Cleaning Fundraiser July 29th

Bellingham Sailors,

July 29th the high school sailing team will be having its annual boat cleaning fundraiser.  The team will be down at the marina most of the day on Sunday the 29th washing boats.  If you have a job for them cleaning, polishing, waxing, please sign up and support the team.  

About the team
The high school sailing team is made up of high schoolers from all over whatcom county, especially Sehome, Bellingham, and Squalicum high schoools.  The team competes in high school regattas all over the west coast and is ranked one of the top teams in the northwest.  This last year the team placed 2nd in the Team Racing District Championships and 3rd in the Fleet Racing District Championships.  This fundraiser is the teams main fundraiser and goes towards travel to these regattas, boat maintenance, gas, and ferry costs.

What will they do?
The team will be cleaning, scrubbing, polishing, waxing, buffing, you name it!  Whatever you want us to do we will do it, provided it is within our abilities.  A likely job will be scrubbing the boat deck, but we could do more detailed polishing and waxing jobs.  We will not be doing bottom scrubbing or anything dangerous and beyond our capabilities.

July 29th, 9am to 2pm.  All jobs will be scheduled during this time.  We will contact you after you sign up and arrange for the best time.  

Cleaning Supplies
We will be using our own generic cleaning or polishing equipment, but if you have something specific you would like us to use please provide it and list when filling out the form.

This fundraiser is based on donations.  We are recommending a donation of $10 per kid per hour.  These kids are experts at scrubbing boats so this is a great deal.  

Sign up!!
To sign up Cick here. After you sign up we will contact you to arrange details. Sign up soon!

For more information email whatcomsailing@gmail.com or call 360.303.1759.

Thank you for your support,
Scott Wilson
