About Us


Whether you enjoy the competition of racing, opportunity to keep learning, fellowship, or relaxation of a sunset sail, sailing is the perfect sport to last a lifetime. 

Renton Sailing Center (RSC) offers:

  • Sailing instruction through classes and clinics

  • Open sailing

  • Racing

  • Fun activities

  • Women’s sailing

  • A variety of sailing vessels

Founded in 1965, RSC is a 501(c)(3) non-profit community sailing organization dedicated to the sport of sailing.  We foster a family-like atmosphere to support the interests of sailors of all abilities.

As a member of RSC, you will have the chance to learn the necessary skills to sail safely and efficiently in our boats.  You will also have opportunities to make your own contribution to the organization through teamwork and volunteering.

RSC provides US Sailing Small Boat Instruction and sailing clinics.  The Center also supports an active small boat racing series that begins in May and goes through the summer.  

Our US Sailing Small Boat instructors are experienced, excellent instructors who know how to put the fun into learning sailing.

We hope you will join us!
