Having been formed over thirty-five years ago, we are the oldest women's sailing association  in the United States dedicated to fostering and encouraging all aspects and all skill levels of sailing; instilling confidence and empowering our members out on the water.
One of the primary missions of the Tacoma Women's Sailing Association is to promote sailing education on and around Puget Sound. Volunteers donate time and equipment to teach a variety of classes. Most, but not all , of the instructors are women, and one of the objectives of the classes is to offer an environment that will be comfortable for sailors of all skill levels to learn more about the sport. Anyone over the age of 18 is welcome to take our classes.

Sailing,… just the thought brings feelings of freedom, flying on the wind and surfing the waves of Puget Sound. Sea life all around, adventures that tap the visceral senses—Breezes, Salt Air, The exhilaration of learning to harness the power of the wind, Taking its energy and turning it into sheer fluid movement and ratcheting up your excitement with new friends around you… YAHOO!
