The Carlyle Sailing Association Harbor is opening on April 17, and on schedule! This wouldn't have been possible without the hard work of a massive work party group numbering over 78 people. Our sailors braved the wind and rain to get ready to open for the 2021 season.
The Commodore's Banquet (2020 Awards Banquet) is planned to be held at CSA on April 17. Currently, the plan is to hold the event at the Pavilion. If the temperature with the wind chill is 50F or below, we will plan to move the event indoors. So its a great reason to bring your boat out to CSA and stay for dinner. Reservations required for meals/beverages. Register here.
We will continue to respond to phone and email inquiries as we look ahead to the 2021 season. You can also use the new Chat Feature by clicking on the green chat button on the right if you need help finding information on our website. 4/15/21
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!
