Columbia BasinSailing Club
Columbia Basin Sailing Club is located in the Tri Cities (Kennewick, Pasco, Richland)
and sails from Charbonneau Park on the lake Sacajawea behind Ice Harbor dam. CBSC has
hosted some of the most memorable events in the inland Pacific Northwest. Some of these
include the SJ 21 Western Nationals, the Sea Spray NA's, the Flying Scot Pacific Districts,
and the 3 Meter Worlds. The Desert Regatta, generally held in May each year, is one of the
largest multi-class regattas in the Pacific Northwest.
A wet sheet and a flowing sea,
A wind that follows fast,
And fills the white and rustling sail,
And bends the gallant mast.
