The mission of the Cleveland Sailing Association, (CSA) is to increase activity in sailboat racing in the Greater Cleveland Area. Member club’s regattas are combined into a Series for an overall competition. This gives racing teams an opportunity to travel to other clubs and sail in a wider variety of races while enjoying the hospitality and camaraderie of the Cleveland sailing community. The Governing Authority is the Cleveland Sailing Association.
The Advantages of the CSA:
CSA scores and awards five series. Boats are encouraged to participate in multiple series. A single $35 registration fee allows eligibility in all CSA series.
BOTY (Boat of the Year)
The BOTY is the most prestigious and lengthy CSA Series. It encourages participation in all club regattas that are designated CSA events.
