The Windmill Class Association is a non-profit governing organization. All officials are Windmill owners, who serve as volunteers. There is not a paid staff. All funds are used for communications between class owners and to support the sport of sailing - especially Windmill sailing. The Class sells construction plans and publishes an informative newsletter The Jouster which provides an interchange of rigging ideas, construction techniques and regatta reports.

According to a survey of owners, the Windmill's sustained popularity is due to three major reasons; the friendly people in the Class, the boats high performance and her attractive price. Most organized activity is concentrated in the Southern, Atlantic, New England and Mid-Western states. There is also an active fleet in California and a new fleet developing in Washington State. Internationally Windmills are actively sailed in Finland while there are also boats in many other countries.

The Windmill class newsletter The Jouster is published four times a year.
