New COVID-19 guidance has been released. Please review it here. 

The Carlyle Sailing Association Harbor is open! 

To reserve a CSA Fleet Boat, you must be logged in (click the link in the upper right hand corner).  More information is available in the overview at the blue ribbon above. 

3-hour member lessons are available by reservation. Click the GO SAILING link above - Find Member Lessons and Sign up...it's that easy.

The next bulk training day is 5/29/21 starting at 10am.  These training days are available to all members.  We'll review the online registration process together upstairs at the OB, get organized into groups and get to it. Plan to bring a lunch and get some sailing in with your new friends in the afternoon.  A new member social is planned on the evening of 5/29 so make an evening of it.  Should the weather gods smile on us, we'll try the outdoor movie set up at dusk. 5/18/21 

What is CSA?

Founded in 1971, Carlyle Sailing Association is a not-for-profit sailing organization located just an hour east of Saint Louis, Missouri, on Carlyle Lake in Southern Illinois. With some of the finest sailing facilities in Midwest, we are a friendly, family-oriented, volunteer association dedicated to the sport of sailing. CSA has a number of active one-design fleets, as well as club owned boats available to qualified sailors. We have events year-round, including weekly races, regattas, parties, and sailing lessons.

Our harbor is situated on Carlyle Lake: a 26,000 acre, man-made lake; approximately 8 miles long and 3 miles wide. It is the largest lake in Illinois and enjoys a well-deserved reputation as one of the best sailing lakes in the Midwest and the Saint Louis area.

We are a friendly, family-oriented, volunteer association dedicated to the sport of sailing. Whether you're into competitive racing or just chilling out, CSA offers something for everyone!

Sailing is many things...

  • It’s fun, family, outdoors, new friendships...
  • It’s exciting, challenging. It’s the thrill of the wind moving the boat across the water...
  • It’s calming and serene. It’s an escape from the rigors of daily life.
