The mission of the Duluth-Superior Sailing Association is to offer the joy of sailing to the entire Duluth-Superior community, regardless of skill level, physical disability, or financial means. Our experienced, A.S.A. and U.S. Sailing certified staff provide sailing classes for children and adults of all experience levels, including beginning sailing lessons, A.S.A. certification courses, and racing clinics. We provide programs for group sailing, adaptive sailing, and special topic sailing clinics and courses. Our open sailing hours are noon-dusk most days in our June-September season, providing many opportunities to get out on the water with our Day Sailer fleet, which includes everything from from 8-foot Optis for kids to racing boats and our cruise boats for experienced sailors. Become a DSSA member today, and join us for a fantastic summer experience!

Yes….it’s been a long winter, but as I sit here, the ice is off the bay and we’ve had enough of those beautiful, sunny and warm days to make us start dreaming about summer and sailing. I have to admit, I’ve been a little slow on the uptake this spring and am just now starting to get summer events posted on the calendar. A couple things of note….
Our annual spaghetti dinner is scheduled for next weekend, once again at St. Paul’s church in Duluth (details on our Facebook site). We’ve also scheduled our Spring Open House events for Saturday June 4th and June 11th – Noon-4pm.
These events are great ways to find out about the DSSA organization and to connect with members.
As we head towards summer, I encourage all to connect with our Facebook site and/or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and ask to be added to the mailing list. Those are the two main venues that I use to disseminate information about summer events.
I look forward to seeing new and old friends at the pier this summer. If you’re new to the area and have questions, email me and I will be in touch!
I thought I’d throw a reminder out to folks that our Facebook site is a great way to stay in touch with what is going on at the pier during the summer months as I update that more regularly then the web site! If you haven’t made it there, check us out at:
The summer is staying busy and we’ve had some beautiful days! Be sure to stop down and visit! Check the pier calendar for exceptions to our hours, but generally you’ll find someone down there from noon till at least 6:30 7 days a week….later if someone is out sailing!
Dear Members and Friends,
Well we’re off and running! Youth lessons are starting this week and we have a full class for the upcoming weekend Adult lessons. We still have boats to get in the water, but the Lasers, Soling, Optis, Interlakes, Johnson Xboat (new to us) and one of the 2.4 meter boats are in and ready to go. J-Fore (Cal24) is in the water and just needs a couple days to get it prepped for sailing.
