Caribbean Sailing Association
Committed to Youth Development


A special section of the Caribbean Sailing Association (CSA) website, http://caribbean-sailing.com, is dedicated to Youth Development. The CSA is interested in supporting current grassroots youth sailing programs and communities that wish to start a junior sailing program, as well as long-established clubs. Ellen Birrell, CSA Sailing Development Chair, says, “We will continue to build this page to become a robust resource for youth sailors, leaders and coaches.”

The CSA is a federation of territories and clubs that promotes sailing activities within the Caribbean, and promotes Caribbean sailing to the world. Originating in the Eastern Caribbean, it has since broadened to cover the entire Caribbean region. The CSA operates in parallel with the world body of sailing: the International Sailing Federation (ISAF). In each member country the ISAF has a National Member Authority.
Youth sailing development is a priority for the CSA. In an effort to assist youth leaders in developing their own programs by networking to see how other clubs overcome challenges and move foreword, the CSA is collecting contact information on each youth program. If your club is not listed with the CSA, please submit your program name, location, and best contact’s phone and e-mail address to vpsouth@caribbean-sailing.com.

The CSA Youth Calendar is dedicated to youth events across the Caribbean.
