Chautauqua Lake Community Sailing Foundation

Teaching the community to sail, race, and love the sport of sailing!

Welcome to the CLCSF, where our goal is to provide an easy and affordable way for everyone to enjoy sailing on Lake Chautauqua.  We focus on High School team racing, as well as youth through adult sailing courses and education. CLCSF is a non-profit community based organization.

Exciting new Summer sailing courses coming for 2019 season!

We had a great startup to our 2019 spring sailing season including new sailors to our teams!  CLCSF is also excited to be introducing some new sailing programs with Southwestern High School, the local YMCA, Boys and Girl’s Club, as well as continuing the Jamestown Community College non-credit sailing course and our regularly offered youth and adult programs. 

The high school sailing course at Southwestern Central has been a resounding hit with students and adults alike. Talks of possible expansion of the course to other age groups and schools are in the works. A huge Thank You to everyone who helped make this physical education course possible.

This summer we will be conducting a sailing course for the Boys and Girls club in addition to our regularly scheduled teen sailing programs. We will also be holding Wednesday Race Days for both adults and family groups.

Check out the program links located at the top or bottom of our page for more details.

Come down to Lakewood Beach during any of our practice times to observe, or join in, and see if sailing is right for you!
