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...

SISO 2024 Summer Sailing Camp Registration Opens April 1 !!!

SISO is planning for a full slate of youth sailing camps this summer - including Basic, Intermediate, Racing, and an All Girls Camp - for kids ages 12-17.  Registration for Boise City residents opens April 1 at 7:00 am; non-resident registration opens on April 3 at 7:00 am.  Please see our Learn to Sail page for registration information, and our Events page for class dates.  Classes are dependent upon adequate water levels, and we have been notified that the Corps of Engineers plans to start a drawdown on the third week in July for work on the Turner Gulch boat ramp.  We recommend registering for early camps this year.

We appreciate the support of our partners - City of Boise Parks and Recreation, Idaho Department of Parks and Recreation, Ada/Boise Counties, and of course, all the individual and corporate community support.  This could not happen without you.

Check out our SPRING NEWSLETTER to learn more about our plans for the current year.

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.
