Seattle's Center for Wooden Boats, a hands-on maritime museum and sailing activity center, was selected "outstanding year-round program" for 2009 by the US Sailing Community Sailing Council.

"We are honored to be recognized by US Sailing as the outstanding year-round program," CWB executive director Betsy Davis said in a statement. "Providing public access to the water and hands-on sailing experiences is a core part of our mission and I am very proud of our staff, volunteers and supporters who work hard to make it possible."

CWB provides access to the water through free Sunday sails, youth and adult sailing lessons, boatbuilding workshops, field trips and more. More than 100,000 youth and adults participate in CWB programs each year.
