  • As a 100% volunteer association, all funds
    generated are used to run our program and
    maintain our sailing fleet and safety boats.
  • Our ratio of trained instructors and
    volunteers per sailor is unsurpassed in a
    SW Florida youth sailing program.
  • The community support we receive
    enables us to keep classes affordable for
    youngsters who might otherwise never know
    the thrill of sailing or appreciate the treasure
    we have in Lemon Bay.
  • With your banner on display during each of
    our training days, your community support will
    be visible at our Indian Mound Park facility.


Since 2002, Englewood Sailing Association is proud to have offered affordable sailing programs for youth and adults each spring, summer and fall from Indian Mound Park on beautiful Lemon Bay.

Throughout the year, we also offer intermediate and advanced youth classes, as well as providing support for the Day Sail Divas, an auxiliary group of women sailors associated with ESA. In June and July, with assistance from the Divas, we sponsor full-day youth sailing camps.

Our dedicated volunteers are CPR and First Aid certified, and ten of our volunteers have completed the US Sailing Small Boat Instructor's Course.

facility during each of our training sessions.

At the end of the first year, a renewal is offered for an additional $200 to continue displaying the
original banner for another year.

ESA — A Teaching Organization

The Englewood Sailing Association, Inc. was founded and incorporated in 2002 as a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit corporation for the sole purpose of sharing our aquatic resources, in a safe and ecologically responsible manner, with area youth and their families through sailing. To achieve this goal, we are proud to be working in cooperation with the Sarasota County Parks and Recreation Department and have partnered with the Warren Loranger Englewood YMCA to provide instruction in sailing, water safety and respect for our environment.
