420 Sailing

Kids on a big boat

Welcome to SSA!  We are excited to celebrate our 73rd summer of instilling the love of sailing in kids and adults.  We strive not only to teach our students how to sail, but also to cultivate sense of responsibility that will keep Seneca Lake a place that all can enjoy.

SSA is committed to promoting sailing in 2020; however, as a result of COVID-19 restrictions, SSA is changing the nature and format of our offerings this summer.  Our regular format of weekly instruction is no longer in the cards, but, we will have some opportunities to share shortly! We will update this information as soon as we have more to tell you!

1) The practical upshot of this is that we must delay our opening at least until the week of 13 July. 

2) We are cancelling our regular weekly youth program offerings for 2020.

3) We will be offering sailing opportunities for youth and adults; we will provide details by the end of  May
