Where your Sailing adventure begins

Canyon Ferry Sailing Center brings new sailing opportunities to Canyon Ferry Lake - access to sailboats for experienced sailors and sailing instruction by US Sailing-certified instructors for those wanting to learn.


At Canyon Ferry Sailing Center, we strive to empower students young and old to tackle the challenges of learning how to sail.  Our goal is to teach safe sailboat handling skills in a structured, step by step approach, from classroom to on the water training.  The basic keel boat  program follows the same guidelines and principles as provided by U.S. Sailing.  Whether just learning or wishing to improve basic sailing knowledge, this program is sure to provide something for everyone.

The 2020 Sailing Season is over!!

September 28th, 2020

A successful sailing season has ended for Canyon Ferry Sailing Center. Despite the great fall weather, the lake level is too low and we had to pull our boats out of the water. Unfortunately with that, the era of Canyon Ferry Sailing Center is ending as well. Due to personal life changes, we are unable to continue the Sailing Center next year.


We hope you enjoyed our services and will keep sailing the waters of Canyon Ferry Lake.

Our freshly remodeled J24 - Blown Away

Over the last year and a half we remodeled this beautiful 1977 J 24. We removed all bad wood, replaced it properly and repainted the whole inside and deck including the non skid. It also has a new bulkhead and a new faired keel. Sails great in little and strong wind. 

The boat comes with a single axle trailer, a full set of sails in good condition, a 4 hp Johnson outboard engine and many more parts. 

The boat is eager to sail with a new owner.

About Canyon Ferry Sailing Center


When dreams come true...

It was when Pat, with a long-time passion for sailing and sailboats, met Marc, who grew up sailing in Switzerland, that Canyon Ferry Sailing Center was born.  Pat has 27 years of experience sailing on Canyon Ferry Lake, racing in the northwest, and rebuilding sailboats from the keel to the tip of the mast.  Marc has extensive sailing experience, from cruising to racing, and has  taught sailing lessons in Switzerland.  Both are US Sailing certified instructors.
