Website Update: US Sailing will be conducting website maintenance, beginning this Friday, March 27 through Sunday, March 29. As a result, some areas of our website will not be operational during this time, including membership renewals, course registration, PHRF data, Where to Sail, SOARS, etc. US Sailing would like to thank you for your patience.


Each and every sailor should have the opportunity to enjoy the sport to its fullest. At US Sailing, our training and education programs build skills that benefit sailors throughout the country. Fair and well-run races, safer waterways, skilled racers and confident cruisers all ensure a lifetime of participation and fun for every sailor.
