Our Purpose

  • To provide, facilitate, sponsor, and organize recreational boating activities for members and the general public;

  • To provide educational resources for youth and adults.

  • And to promote safety and competence during water-related functions.


The SSA meets its objectives each year by organizing and facilitating weekly sailboat racing and hosting various regattas; organizing and facilitating youth and adult sailing classes throughout the summer; hosting social events for members and others interested in sailing; and a host of off season activities to support our objectives.
