Current 2018 CSA Scoring

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 separate 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 entrants are granted free dockage (Wednesday to Wednesday) at host regattas.
  • Registration discounts for CSA Boat of the Year designated events (except CYC Leukemia Cup)
  • A chance to participate in the Cleveland Cup – CSA’s Invitational Race.
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.
