Training and Education

Hueston Sailing Association offers two premier training events, Junior Sailing Camp and Ladies Sailing Camp. We also can refer people to other opportunities sponsored by the Ohio Valley Sailing Association, the American Red Cross, or the Coast Guard Auxiliary. Further, we are a friendly bunch that want to see new people enter the sport, so many of our members are willing to carry you out on their boat or engage you as a crew member for a time or two to get you started, if you are truly interested. We also offer some special Learn to Sail days.

Junior Sailing Camp

Each summer 20 to 25 boys and girls ages 11 through 15 have the opportunity to participate in Junior Sailing Camp. They enjoy instruction on land, followed by practice on the water for three days. They learn how to handle and launch the Sunfish, sail it, and even race versus their fellow campers by the end of the three days. They camp in tents and enjoy meals together. This program has been going for many years and has been the starting point for many great sailors. It is so popular there is usually a waiting list, so it is best to get your name in by March. Participants are encouraged to bring a Sunfish if they have one or can borrow one, but if they do not have one, we can find one for them. For additional information, contact Jerry Callahan at 513-988-6747, visit online Junior Sailing Camp Program Outline or send an email.

Ladies Sailing Camp

Designed for ladies that want to learn to sail or learn to sail better, this is a two day camp offered each summer. This includes lots of practice in a Sunfish. For more information, contact Jerry Callahan at 513-988-6747, visit online Ladies Sailing Camp Program Outline or send an email.
