Hueston Sailing Association

Introduction To SailingHueston Sailing Association (HSA) has many activities to promote the sport of sailing in Southwestern Ohio. Regular races fine tune your sailing skills to a level that cannot be achieved with casual sailing. 

Hueston Sailing Association offers a premier 3-day sailing camp for kids between the ages of 11 and 15-years-old. For additional information and an applicattion form, visit Junior Sailing Camp Program Outline.

HSA also offers a few Introduction to Sailing days throughout the season. This is a chance for you to take sailing lessons and learn to sail.

We are also offer a Learn to Sail program. This provides one-on-one training. Click here for more information.

There are enough social opportunities to allow you to get to know your fellow sailors and share sea stories, yet not so many as to overwhelm you. We have pot lucks on the Holiday Series weekends and a brunch in July.

Hueston Sailing Association is based on Acton Lake, in Hueston Woods State Park, near Miami University and Oxford, Ohio. Hueston Woods is an easy and scenic drive from Cincinnati or Dayton. Acton Lake is ideal for small boat sailing for several reasons. Power boats are limited to no wake speed, which means that sailors can enjoy their sport without the interference of wakes from jet skis or skiers. The marina area has spacious set up areas for prepping your boat, and excellent launch facilities. A paved dry storage lot is available for those who like to keep their boat at the lake out of the water, or some prefer to rent a slip and keep their boat on the water. The State Park has facilities for social gatherings year round. This environment means the club does not need to maintain its own facilities, so the cost of membership is very low.

Sailboat racing is the core activity of HSA. Races are held Sunday afternoons late April to mid-October, with a 1:30 p.m. start for the first fleet. Currently there are three fleets: Hobies, Y-Flyer, Sunfish/Handicap (any boat that sails). Racing makes a great family activity, with many husband-wife or parent-child teams.
