Manchester Sailing Association (MSA), organized in 1971, is a community sailing program that teaches sailing and racing for all skill levels with a structured curriculum while promoting safety, fun and sportsmanship.
MSA offers sailing lessons for children and adults of all ability levels from Manchester and the surrounding communities. The program takes place at scenic Tuck's Point and on the docks of the Manchester Yacht Club, with easy access to the Manchester Harbor and surrounding waters. Both recreational and competitive sailing are offered in a fun, educational environment. We have classes from beginner sailors to competitive race teams. MSA owns a fleet of boats including Dyer Dhows, Optimist Dinghies, 420s, and Rhodes 19s, all available for classes and open Saturday sailing.
Social events include Misery Island Day and Annual Cook-out/Awards Ceremony. Children dress up as pirates and sail to Misery Island for a fun afternoon of sailing, treasure hunts and games. At the end of the season, MSA hosts an annual cook-out and awards ceremony at Tuck's Point for all sailors and their parents.
