Welcome to SSA! We are excited to celebrate our 74th 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 a sense of responsibility that will keep Seneca Lake a place that all can enjoy.
Hi everyone! 2021 Registration is open! SSA is pleased to announce that we will be offering a full summer of sailing instruction and fun. Sailing camp opportunities will begin with a Race Week for kids interested in learning/honing racing skills starting 28 June. The following session, starting Tuesday, July 6, will be Opti Week for beginning sailors aged 7-8. After that, a series of Adventure Weeks for kids with experience (or starting sailors 9 and older) will begin starting the week of July 12. Please see our instructional pages for more information.
FIRST SAIL opportunities! Not sure if sailing is for you? Most Geneva residents have never been on a sailboat! Now’s your chance to hop on for a few minutes and give it a try. Learn more about our “First Sail” at the Farmers Market. Scroll down for more info!
Our summer 2020 season was a remarkable success, in spite of the restrictions placed on us by the pandemic. We safely hosted over 60 sailors, both kids and adults, during our shortened season. We partnered with the Geneva Boys & Girls club to bring kids out onto the lake. We trained adult sailors in some pretty exciting conditions. And we had a blast doing it. Check our Gallery Page for a taste of what we did.
Finally, you can also visit our Donation page to think about how you can help us continue to bring sailing, the outdoors, and a love of this beautiful place together for you and for our community. Thanks for visiting!
