Promoting the Sport of Sailing Since 1957
"A Tradition of Sailing Excellence" is not only the Halifax Sailing Association's motto, but a fitting description for a club that has dedicated itself to promoting the sport of sailing and perpetuating the values of camaraderie and community.
In 1957, twelve sailors organized what was to formally become the Halifax Sailing Association. They had vision, determination and passion. Their intent: "To find a better way to attract more boats, more sailors, and to organize better races and other sailing events." This continues to be a tradition we have upheld for over 50 years. HSA is one of the oldest and most active sailing clubs in Central Florida.
In keeping with the Club's original purpose, we sponsor many races and other sailing activities and provide opportunities to introduce both children and adults to this relaxing sport year after year. We also provide affordable sailing lessons so new sailors can learn to sail the correct way, from experienced, certified instructors. Our facility is located on the Halifax River, close to downtown Daytona Beach, Florida.
Halifax Sailing Association is a not-for-profit, 501 (c) 3 Organization
Melinda Matheus has developed a gofundme site to help us raise funds for recovering from the damage caused by Hurricane Irma. We would, of course, appreciate any donation. We would also appreciate your forewarding this link to anyone you think might help our cause.
Thank you for your support !

Phase 1 of the rebuild is nearing completion.
The contractor has finished work on the wooden walkway out to the boat lift. Big Thanks to clubmembers Steve R, Mike H, Roy E and Vince C who installed the water and electrical service to the dock. We hope to have the safety boat on the lift soon.
