Special events for 2018

21 April - Harbor opens!

19 May - Try Sailing Day – all are invited to the CSA harbor on that day to tour the facility, and take rides on as many different types of sailboats as desired. Refreshments will be available.

31 May - 2 June - Adult Sailing Seminar – this three-day “learn to sail” program is open to all adults, and no sailing experience is required. Sufficient skill can be obtained during the program to qualify to rent sailboats at CSA. This on-the-water program is led by instructors certified by US Sailing with one instructor for every three students allowing each maximum “tiller time”.

3 - 8 June - Junior Sailing Camp – this five day program is open to all kids 10 thru 16 years of age, and sailboats are provided. All meals, snacks, and tent camping are included. Students learn to sail or increase their sailing skills, plus participate in other water oriented games and adventures. Certified adult training, chaperone, and medical staff on site throughout.

30 June - Carlyle fireworks, CSA chicken dinner

15-16 September - Whale of a Sail Regatta – this racing and social event is open to all sailboats, and is attended by sailors from throughout the Midwest. A package of social events may be purchased for those not participating in the racing. Limited crew positions on cruising race boats will be available with advance reservation. Check back in July.

4 November - CSA harbor closes for the season. Sailboat and kayak rentals end.

Look for CREW DAYS, generally the first Saturday of each month. These are a great opportunity for you to get on a boat
