Bye 2021, Hello 2022
Your friends at CGRA would like to thank all those who participated in our 2021 events.
Thanks for making the challenges of hosting regattas and clinics doable despite a pandemic.
You make our efforts worthwhile. We managed to have a fabulous season hosting sailors
from all over the country. We experienced a record turnout for the Wind Regatta,
the Columbia Gorge One Design (CGOD),
our signature regatta
was well attended, and the Skamania Coves Invitational met with rave reviews,
a new venue that we will repeat in 2022.
The RS Aeros are coming
. . . for real this time
After a year postponement CGRA is looking forward to hosting the RS Aeros for their
World championships. Welcome RS Aero sailors!
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.
If you're passionate about sailing and
like what we're doing, please consider including CGRA in your charitable
contributions this year. CGRA is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, and all
contributions are fully tax deductible. To make a contribution or learn more,
