Community Sailing Program

Community Sailing Program

Come sail with us! We embrace the three "S's" of sailing: Stewardship, Sportsmanship and Skills here on Squam. Throughout the year the Squam Lakes Association offers ways for sailors to connect, strengthen their skills, and enjoy the sport of sailing.


CYSP: Community Youth Sailing Program is our renowned instructional program for young sailors which starts at the basic level and builds up to racing skills.


Community Sailing Topic Talks: These talks bring together folks interested in sailing to discuss a new topic each month. If you would like to lead a talk please contact Leigh Ann Reynolds, Director of Education.


Around the Lake Race: A fun race for all types of sailing crafts to enjoy a day on Squam while supporting SLA's Community Sailing Program. 


Evening Sails: Volunteer led evening sails are a great way to learn the basics of sailing, enjoy an evening on the water, and meet others interested in sailing. Dates and times will be posted as volunteers sign up.



Our Community Sailing Program relies heavily on volunteers so if you are interested in sharing your passion for sailing, your skills, and your knowledge please contact our volunteer coordinator. We are always looking for folks to help maintain our fleet, teach evening sailing classes, and assist at special events like the much loved Around the Lake Race.
