Open Sailing Sailing Lessons Youth Camps Friday Night Racing
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. Become a DSSA member today, and join us for a fantastic summer experience!
From Day Sailers to Cruise Boats, our fleet has boats for beginning sailors, experienced skippers, and everyone in between!
The greatest skill anyone can learn is how to sail.
Use our calender to see open sailing hours, find dates and times for lessons and clinics, and check for pier closings due to weather or special events.
Open Sailing hours are from noon till dusk except in the following situations:
- Calendar indicates “Busy” during the listed hours, due to a group event.
- The pier will close at 6:30 if no boats are on the water at that time. We will stay open if you call prior to 6:30 and let us know you’re coming down.
- The pier will close in inclement or unsafe weather conditions.
