Since 1985, the Manatee Sailing Association has been attracting sailing enthusiasts of all levels. We are a community of sailors, some with boats, and some without, who share a common love for sailing. We don’t have an official home base, but most of our members live near Florida’s Western central waters.
Our number one goal is to promote safe sailboat handling through shared experiences and education whether cruising or racing, and of course, to foster the friendship that naturally occurs in our sailing community. We meet quarterly, generally sponsor a cruise in local waters each month, and gather for a landside social event monthly. We also have longer cruises of a week or more.
