ISA: Brett Beyer to offer world-class Laser coaching in the Gorge!
Attention Laser sailors! The International Sailing Academy (ISA) will be back in the Gorge this summer offering world-class training opportunities to North American sailors in the planet's premiere heavy air venue. ISA training camps are renowned for producing game-changing performance gains for club racers as well as Olympic medalists. As a special bonus, leading the ISA coaching team this year is 13-time Laser Masters World Champion and Olympic sailing coach Brett Beyer from Sydney, Australia. In addition to offering three training camps (one youth and two all-ages), ISA coaches will be available for regatta coaching at the Wind Youth Regatta, July 20-21, and the Laser Master Pacific Coast Championships, August 3-4.
If you've ever asked the question "How can I make this boat go faster?" YOU DO NOT WANT TO MISS THIS OPPORTUNITY! Attendance is limited, so sign up today to reserve your space.
Support world-class sailing in the Gorge
It takes a lot of work and a lot of money to continue to bring world-class sailing
opportunities to the Gorge. Without the membership base of a traditional yacht
club, we're dependent on the support of our friends to help cover the costs of
boats, shore facilities, site improvements, coaching, instruction, and race
management. Donations and sponsorships account for nearly a third of our budget;
without them, we could not exist.
Sailing the Gorge: Too much fun?
“The best place in the world to sail!” That’s what multi-class dinghy champ Jay Renehan had to say about Cascade Locks, Oregon, home of the Columbia Gorge Racing Association after the final race of the 2013 Tasar World Championships. “I could sail like that all day, every day. It was too much fun!”
What’s So Great About Sailing the Gorge?
"It is really one of the legendary venues of the world." Jonathan McKee explains what he means in this interview.

How was your experience sailing in the Gorge? What can we do to make future visits more enjoyable for you and your family? What CGRA programs and/or events are most important to you?
