In the fall of 2019, US Sailing announced a new community sailing program made possible by a major donation from the Thomas and Stacey Siebel Foundation. The purpose of this ground-breaking Siebel Sailors Program is to increase diversity and opportunity in the sport of sailing by providing resources and support to youth sailors at public access sailing centers across the country. Despite 2020 being an unprecedented year of programming challenges, the Siebel Sailors Program delivered over 1,200 hours of programming to 244 unique sailors across the five regions to a diverse population of sailors.

Today, US Sailing is highlighting newly selected Supporting Siebel Centers who will implement this innovative program in our current Pacific Northwest and Mid-Atlantic Regions. We are adding a fourth Center within each of these Regions to bring us closer to our overall goal of having 20 active Centers nationwide. These designated centers will support an important US Sailing objective of providing increased access to sailing for youth, regardless of socioeconomic background, and will receive a fleet of sail boats, other necessary equipment, and expert coaching.

Siebel Sailors will have access to a range of sailing experiences and boat types, with the RS Feva XL as the primary boat. Michael Cornew, Siebel Coach in the Pacific Northwest, and Janel Zarkowsky, Siebel Coach in the Mid-Atlantic, both look forward to adding these Centers to their current partnerships.

US Sailing is excited to partner with the following Siebel Centers in the Mid-Atlantic and Pacific Northwest regions:

  • Washington Sailing Marina (Alexandria, Va.)
  • Willamette Sailing Club (Portland, Ore.)
