For more than 30 years, the Columbia Gorge Wind & Water Association has advocated for wind & water enthusiasts’ needs for access to the Columbia River and for affordable access for children and adults to equipment, so they can learn the sport. To that end, we work with State Parks, Port Districts, City and County government entities, local schools, the Tribal organizations, and the Corps of Engineers to acquire, design, build and maintain waterfront access points. Nearly every sailing site has been influenced by the CGW2 and we maintain great relationships with all the interested parties to help with continued maintenance and improvements to these sites (download our site map on this website!).
With the advent of new water sports that are enjoying the fruits of the CGW2’s efforts, we hope that all these new user groups join us in these efforts by becoming active members and volunteers at our events.
