Founded in 2004 as a vehicle to get Seattle boaters out on their boats, the Downtown Sailing Series is a casual weekly summer regatta showcasing the sport of sailing to the citizens of Seattle. Popular with local boating enthusiasts, the post-regatta party has taken on a life of its own as great venue for building a sense of community. Since its partnership with the Leukemia Cup Regatta in 2005, the Downtown Sailing Series has helped raise more than $1,500,000 for blood borne disease. Join our incredible sponsors and loyal participants in this summertime tradition!    

Race or cruise with dozens of boats of every size as they set sail from Elliott Bay Marina, cross the Seattle skyline and run back. Afterwards celebrate over beer, wine and hotdogs at the Seattle Yacht Club outstation. You may even win a sail bag of goodies from our sponsors. It’s a great way to spend time with your mates and meet fellow sailors!
