US Sailing's new and growing youth development program is expanding to include the states of Oregon and Washington. US Sailing is excited to announce the following Primary and Supporting Siebel Centers. These community sailing organizations play an important role in the development of youth sailing in the Pacific Northwest and around the nation.

Sail Sand Point (Seattle, Wash.) has been selected as the Primary Siebel Center for the Pacific Northwest. The Center for Wooden Boats (Seattle, Wash.) and Gorge Junior Sailing (Hood River, Ore.) have been selected to serve as Supporting Siebel Centers.

In April 2019, US Sailing announced a new nationwide community sailing program made possible by a major donation from the Thomas and Stacey Siebel Foundation. The purpose of this ground-breaking Siebel Sailors Program is to increase diversity and opportunity in the sport of sailing by providing resources and support to youth sailors at public access sailing centers across the country. This is a national US Sailing program that is executed locally by Siebel Centers with adaptations for regional needs across the country.

Most Siebel Center programs across the country have been on hold for several months this spring due to COVID-19, but are now beginning to return to the water for the summer. US Sailing will be closely following state and local government guidelines to determine when to open programming safely with our Siebel Centers.
