Welcome to WWU Sailing
A Little Bit About Us
The Western Washington University Sailing Team is an active group of undergraduate students that share a common passion for sailing.
We are an open, inclusive group that focuses on furthering the competitiveness of sailing as a sport among young adults. Despite being a student-run sports club, our team competes on a national level against varsity programs such as Yale, Stanford, and Brown. We are proud to have sent both our Co-Ed and Women teams to College Sailing Nationals for the past several years and strive to continue the tradition.
Even though our team is highly competitive, we accept all sailors regardless of ability. We have found over the years that enthusiasm and a willingness to learn go a long way, and many of the sailors that joined the team with limited experience are now among our top competitors for District and National regattas.
Effective immediately, The Intercollegiate Sailing Association (ICSA) Executive Committee has voted to cancel the remaining 2019-2020 College Sailing season, this includes all in-conference, promotional, Interconference, and National Championship competitions. This decision is based on the evolving COVID-19 public health threat, our ability to ensure the events do not contribute to the spread of the pandemic, and the impracticality of scheduling and hosting such events at any time during this academic year given ongoing decisions by other entities.
As a result, our annual fundraising event has also been postponed indefinitely.
