Foundry High School Sailing

Our high school sailing program is year-round and open to 7th – 12th grade students.  Six high school sailing teams currently call the Foundry home: Bay Village, Campus International, Lakewood, Rocky River, St. Ignatius and Saint Joseph Academy. Each team practices three days a week at the Station, and competes most weekends locally as well as across the Midwest.  The Fall season begins the last week of August, and runs through October. The Spring season begins in mid March, and runs through the end of May. 

Sailors must have experience racing in dinghies in order to participate in the Spring season and dry suits are required.  Those new to dinghy racing are encouraged to participate in one of our Learn to Sail programs over the summer months and sail with us during the fall season.

***The Foundry is committed to providing athletes pathways to learn the sports of rowing & sailing. For that reason, we are able provide financial assistance to those that may need it. If you would like to find out more information about our financial assistance & scholarship programs, email us at:​.***

Winter Sailing Series

The Foundry provides year-round programming for our sailors.  During the winter months (January through March) we offer middle, high school and college athletes an opportunity to spend time at our upriver facility working out, participating in chalk talks, attending STEM courses, etc.  Strength training, yoga and chalk talks are offered Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays with Tuesdays and Thursdays focusing on topics such as weather forecasting, boat repair, sail theory, environmental science, seamanship, etc.  Sessions run from 4pm – 6pm and all skill levels are welcome.  Our winter programming is especially recommended for those athletes intending to race in the Spring and Fall season.
