PROG/CLUB

Welcome to our Club and Program page!

CLUB... Our club/group is called the Inland Northwest Sailors, which includes the Sea Scouts (ship/troop called the Sea Cats), Hobie Fleet 926, Trailer-able Keelboat Fleet, UFO Fleet, and other sailors with various models of sailboats. We are a trailer club with members spread out all over the Inland NW (N. Idaho, E. WA., NW MT.). We regularly sail together unofficially/officially and have a yearly Scott Bailey Classic (large sailing event) each year (see calendar). We also support sailors with disAbilities via the Trapseat Program (see below). Events and stories are regularly posted on this site. To join email Miles Moore at inlandnwsailors@gmail.com


Event... Yearly Scott Bailey Sailing Classic info is on the FunToSAIL calendar at this link http://www.trapseat.com/p/calendar.html


TRAPSEAT PROGRAM... Out Trapseat Program is focused on helping those with spinal cord injuries and others access sailing via Hobie 16 catamarans outfitted with wing seats called Trapseats. Our goal is to make sailing accessible to all economically and physically. Hobie 16's are the most readily available low cost, durable, and most raced small multihull world wide. By supporting the Trapseat program we facilitate making sailing available to all no matter their economic status or physical abilities.

Two ways to help

1. Volunteer locally (within the Inland NW USA) or internationally in assisting persons with disAbilities to access sailing via lessons and/or as a team member while racing. Volunteer to assist with the yearly International Trapseat Regatta.

2. Donate funding to help us build Trapseats so we can donate them to current and developing accessible sailing programs worldwide, particularly to economically disadvantaged areas where access to sailing by persons with disAbilities is limited or does not exist unless Trapseats become available.

LESSONS... If you do not know how to sail or have not sailed in years we recommend you take one of FunToSAIL's sailing classes. If you do not live near North Idaho we can direct you where you can learn-to-sail or take one of our online courses. FunToSAIL of course offers classes for those with physical disAbilities aboard the Hobie 16 outfitted with Trapseats. Visit the Lessons page!
