Welcome to the Texas Sailing Association

With more than 40 member clubs, Texas Sailing Association works to promote and coordinate sailboat racing in Texas and across the southwest. As part of the US SAILING Association’s regional structure, TSA combines with Central States Sailing Association and Sailing Association of Intermountain Lakes to form Area F, one of US SAILING’s geographic divisions.  Club representatives compete each year in TSA events for the right to continue on to Area and National championships. TSA also provides local access to US Sailing services, such as racing judges and the protest appeal process. Explore our site to learn more about Texas sailing events and programs. We hope to see you on the water soon!
