Mission Statement

“Sail Sand Point’s mission is to bring the joy and life-enhancing benefits of sailing and small boats to people of all ages, abilities and backgrounds.”

History

Since our incorporation in 1998, Sail Sand Point has grown by leaps and bounds, transforming from a small neighborhood program into a flourishing boating community that serves people of all ages, backgrounds and abilities from around King County. Beyond providing learn-to-sail camps and classes, race team coaching and boat storage, Sail Sand Point also has a robust outreach program in place, awards thousands of dollars in program scholarships, and is wholly immersed in building out a comprehensive STEM curriculum to incorporate into all our youth camps and classes, as well as developing our adaptive sailing program, where a boater with a physical disability can come sail or paddle any day of the week.

Over a decade later Sail Sand Point has expanded into teaching youth programs at Mercer Island’s Luther Burbank Park, Kirkland’s Waverly Beach Park, and at Corinthian Yacht Club at Shilshole Bay. Market demand for our programs exceeded all expectations in 2015, and more than 7,500 members of the community had access to boating because of Sail Sand Point’s programs.
