The Interscholastic Sailing Association (ISSA) is the governing body of independent and public secondary schools on the national level. Nevertheless, forming a team and joining ISSA is not required to compete in non-national level events. Competing and attending local/regional regattas with no support from a High School is perfectly acceptable. Entry into the High School sailing arena is very easy, and if students are unable to gain support from the High School they attend, they can sail at local events under the WaterFront Center's name.
The WFC requires participants to consider the WFC as their partner in sailing. In signing up to use WFC boats, everyone, whether on a High School team or not, must assure that WFC equipment remains in good shape and is respected as their own. Additionally, sailors sharing the WFC facility must recognize that all competitors are bound by common goals and experiences, and therefore mutual respect and integrity is expected. For this venture to succeed, every participant must help maintain, promote and, where possible, contribute financially toward its preservation.
