What do we do?

Activities include monthly meetings, spring and fall races series, spring and fall regatta, summer cruising and picnics

Monthly Meetings

A time for socializing, telling of stories and informative programs, the meetings are held the first Thursday of each month.  For 2016, the meetings alternate between Rooster Landing restaurant, on the Snake River in Clarkson, WA and Hilltop Restaurant in Pullman, WA.  Dinner and Socializing at 5:30pm with the meeting starting at 6:00pm.

During the summer, the Club hosts picnics on the Snake River (hot dogs and beverages), at Chief Timothy Park 5 miles west of Clarkston, WA.  June August and September meetings are the first Saturday of the month and July’s meeting is the second Saturday.  BBQ starts a 6:00pm

Cruising / Fun Sailing

The Club host several cruises each year, from simply sailing from Hells Canyon Resort in Clarkston to Chief Timothy for summer meetings to an overnight full moon cruise to multiple day cruises down the Snake River.

During June, July and August, the Club also has the Wednesday Evening Fun Sails.  This is a time to just go out and enjoy the evening, or if the wind does not cooperate, a time to hang out on the docks and enjoy the company of fellow sailors.

Wednesday’s are the perfect time to discover sailing and affords the opportunity to learn to sail and experience several different types of sailboats


For those looking for a little competition, the Club host several racing opportunities each year, beginning with the Frostbite Series in February, March and April and ending with the Fall Series in October and November.

We also host two weekend long regattas each year – the Alex Bell in late April and the Annual Tribune Cup Regatta in mid September.  Both of these events attract sailors from all over the Northwest.

In addition to these events, many members tow their boats to regattas on several regional lakes.

    Hi. We trailer sail a Mac 26D and are planning to come up to Idaho this summer in July. I don’t know anything about Idaho but I’ve seen a little online about Lake Pend Oreille and Lake Coeur D’Alene and those destinations look promising. Could someone direct me to some resources/advice about where to launch, places to see/visit, cruiser videos, websites, photo galleries, etc. ? I been looking on Google and YouTube and am surprised at how little info I’ve found. Your help would be much appreciated. My wife and I sail mostly on San Francisco Bay, local lakes and the San Juan Islands and have some photos and videos on or website at http://glennlisadoney.com/. Thanks again!

    The lakes you are looking at are more than promising! Two of the greatest sailing destinations in Idaho. I’m forwarding your information to our cruise chairman to hopefully provide you with the info you are looking for. Thanks for visiting.

    Do you know where I could get sailing lessons (sailing camp) for my son who is 8 and loves sailing? He started lessons on Lake Travis in Austin TX and wanted to continue. We are willing to spend a week or two at Lake Cascade in a cabin or cottage. Is there anything on Lake Cascade that caters to families and learning to sail? I can’t seem to find anything online. Thanks, Peggy.

  7. Webmaster says:

    Peggy -
    Try contacting SISA. (Southern Idaho Sailing Association) @ http://www.idahosailing.com
    They sail on Cascade in the summer months. Try to get a hold of Commodore Keith Sander. I don’t have an email for him, but the website has a contact form.

    Just noticed your web site & want to get a little more info about your club.

    Over the years I’ve been sailing one-design dinghies and small 20-25′ cabin sailboats.
    Currently, I have a 15′ dinghy which I built in Sequim.

    Am curious about the make-up of your sailing group . . . dinghies ? cabin sailboats ? whatever ?

    Thank you.
