Community Sailing

2022 Class Schedule Available

Anacortes Parks and Recreation partners with the Anacortes Waterfront Alliance to provide opportunities for our community to learn about sailing. We are fortunate to have Fidalgo Bay to use as our sailing venue. Access to the water is a coorperative effort between the Port of Anacortes, APRD, and AWA. Sailing programs are based out of Seafarer’s Park and dock. 

2022 Sailing classes are posted below. Registration begins on Monday, April 25th at 8:00 a.m.  Once the 25th arrives please visit our ONLINE REGISTRATION portal to register with a debit or credit card or you can come to our office (City Hall, 6th & Q, 8am-5pm) and pay with cash or check. Registration for each class is limited so they are taken on a first come, first serve basis. Due to the limited availability in each class we ask that each participant only sign up for one session.
