Our mission at the White Bear Sailing School has always been to foster a love and passion for the sport of sailing through education and competition for all ages. This year, with its' challenges and obstacles, posed a threat to this mission but WBSS was ultimately able to prevail with new restrictions and requirements for our sailors and staff.
Please consider supporting WBSS with a donation of any amount. Your contribution will go towards the legacy WBSS has worked hard to create, which includes All-Americans, Olympic hopefuls, Inland Champions, and of course, lifelong lovers of the sport. The pandemic has been a proven obstacle for WBSS, and your gift will help us offset our inability to have full capacity classes, host regattas, and have in-person fundraising.
Since WBSS is a Non-Profit 501(c)(3), all donations are tax-deductible. Thank you for your continued support!

The White Bear Sailing School is an independent, 501c3 non-profit organization. Though we are located on the beautiful grounds of the White Bear Yacht Club, we are a separate entity and membership there is not required for any of our sailing classes or race teams. Our goal is to introduce people to the lifelong sport of sailing by engaging in activities that foster the legacy, skills, and art of sailing through education, competition and fun with programs for all ages. We strive to provide all of our students with a fun and safe learning environment that offers a broad exposure to the sport of sailing. We do this by offering instruction for children, teens, and adults of all levels, from beginning sailing through advanced racing.
Our staff of US Sailing certified instructors shall provide a curriculum with current and effective techniques to create skilled and confident sailors who will respect others, care for their equipment, and be willing to help fellow sailors on and off the water. All of our students, whether their interest is in racing or cruising around for fun, should emerge with an enhanced sense of self-reliance, knowledge of seamanship, and a solid foundation in the sport of sailing.
