Embry-Riddle Sailing Needs Your Help
Membership in the Embry-Riddle Sailing Club, a student-run organization and HSA Affiliate, has grown dramatically in the last two years, to the extent that they need a larger fleet of sailboats to accommodate all members. They hope to raise $15,000 to purchase additional FJ sailboats. The Daytona Beach Student Government Association has generously contributed $11,000 towards their goal, so they are now soliciting donations for the remaining $4000.
If you would like to contribute to this worthy cause, you may donate online at https://www.givecampus.com/campaigns/15770/donations/new?donation_type=general (Designation: Embry Riddle Sailing Club).
Members May Now Sail Capri's
Allowing members to sail sunfish seems to be working well, so members will now be allowed to also take out a Capri. Please remember that sailing a Capri requires 2-3 people to sail. ALL sailors on a Capri must wear a mask at all times.
All participants MUST sign a waiver related to COVID-19 and follow all new rules put in place at HSA to keep everyone safe. If you are not willing to sign the waiver or follow the rules, you will not be allowed to sail. We are still not opening up the sailing of club keelboats, and we will not run any regattas or fun races until further notice. Please check back regularly for updates on using the facility.
Promoting 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
