Social & Educational Programs
Getting people together on and off the water is probably the most rewarding value of the club. Leschi sailors get together after racing at club-organized barbeques.
Our Shilshole clubhouse is open to members Thursdays and Fridays year-round and after evening and weekend racing (over 100 nights a year). The bar is often run by volunteers and our $7 dinners are expertly prepared by our private chef, serving over 5,000 dinners per year.
Sometimes we’re just open to hang out and other times we have a program, live music, wine tastings, and sailing presentations by our members.
Check the calendar and join in.
Upcoming Social and Educational Events
Our members love to learn and share. Each year we run dozens of education events including the Rookie Rally (learn how to crew and race), pre-race strategy chalk talks, cruising presentations, first aid, US Sailing courses (race management, judging, safe powerboat handling), markset driver training, women’s sailing clinics, and even volunteer bartender training.
