Southern Idaho Sailing Outreach

Community Learn to Sail Program

Sailing education program for youth in the Treasure Valley

Welcome to Southern Idaho Sailing Outreach

The mission of Southern Idaho Sailing Outreach (SISO) is to promote sailing and sailing instruction for the people of Southern Idaho, with an emphasis on youth education.

What's New with SISO...

UPDATE: Our new Safety Boat has a name !!!

Thanks to tremendous community support and the generosity of our donors, we were successful in our fundraising efforts and have purchased a new safety/chase boat for our youth sailing program. 

All boats have a name, and the SISO Board thought long and hard about a name for our new vessel.  We have decided to honor a long standing supporter of sailing in our local community.  Please see our NEWS ARTICLE to learn more.


Summer Sailing Class Registration opens April 18th, 2022.

The City of Boise plans to open on-line registration for SISO's summer sailing classes on April 18th, 2022 for city residents, and April 20th for non-residents.  Our classes begin June 6th and run through the summer.  Classes fill quickly, so plan to register early.  For more information about our sailing classes and how to register, visit our Learn to Sail page.

Sailing Education

We are dedicated to giving Treasure Valley kids the opportunity to discover sailing and develop the next generation of sailors. Sailing is a sport that fosters a sense of self-reliance and curiosity, builds decision-making and critical thinking skills, develops confidence and a sense of adventure. With SISO, it all happens under the watchful eye of certified instructors in a fun and safe teaching atmosphere.
