Southern Idaho Sailing Outreach relies on strong partnerships to achieve our mission. Our Organizational Chart provides a visual representation of these relationships.
Southern Idaho Sailing Association (SISA) SISO is the outreach arm of our parent organization -SISA – and we share the larger goal of promoting sailing in Southern Idaho. SISA provides expertise and opportunities for sailing, maintains our growing fleet of sailboats, coordinates sailboat races and related events, and, through membership with the Association, provides continued sailing opportunities for students.
Idaho Department of Parks and Recreation (IDPR) Residents of the Treasure Valley in southwestern Idaho are fortunate to have a great sailing venue right in their backyard. Spring Shores Marina, located on Lucky Peak Reservoir and State Park is the planned home of our future instructional sailing program. IDPR maintains the marina and associated infrastructure, including docks and storage facilities for our fleet of instructional sailboats. Without their support, we would not be able to offer the sailing opportunities we enjoy in southern Idaho.
Boise Parks and Recreation The City of Boise plays an integral role in our mission. Boise Parks and Recreation oversees all aspects of sailing instruction and provides the resources and administration for sailing classes at Lucky Peak. This includes providing instructors, marketing, class registration, transportation, and all the other requirements for a successful sailing instruction program.
Ada and Boise Counties Lucky Peak Reservoir, the home of our sailing venue, is located in both Ada and Boise Counties. Ada County owns the docks at Lucky Peak, and both counties provide law enforcement and facilities management.
US Sailing, one of the largest sailing organizations in the world, provides significant support and resources for our sailing program. They provide our insurance and instructor certification, without which we would not be able to offer the caliber of sailing classes which we will soon provide.
