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...

Another Successful Year for our Youth Sailing Program !!!

SISO celebrates the close of our third year of youth sailing classes. This summer, we held six weeks of sailing camps - including basic, intermediate, an all-girls class, as well as certifying five new instructors.  And, thanks to tremendous community support and the generosity of our donors, we were successful in our fundraising efforts and purchased a new safety/chase boat for our youth sailing program.

Please have a look at our Fall/Winter 2022 NEWSLETTER to read more about our successes, along with information about scholarship opportunities for next year. 

SISO welcomes Kate Gehrs to our Board of Directors.  Kate brings a wealth of experience to our Board as our Youth Racing Advisor.  Please visit our Board of Directors page for more information.

Thanks for being an integral part of our success.  Wishing you and your family the best in 2023 from the SISO Board of Directors.



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.
