Texas Sailing Association

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.  We hope to see you on the water soon!

2024 U.S. Adult Sailing Championship for the Clifford D. Mallory Trophy

The 2024 U.S. Adult Sailing Championship for the Clifford D. Mallory Trophy will be held September 27-29 at the Detroit Yacht Club in Detroit, Michigan. 

Registration for this event requires qualification or a referral from Texas Sailing Association (TSA) as the US Sailing Regional Sailing Association (RSA). Teams interested in competing should contact Marie Wise at txjuniorsail@gmail.com.

Sailing resumes for interested teams will be considered by TSA officers for the RSA referral.  The application should be submitted no later than Sunday, July 28 at 1800 hours.  The application should include the skipper and each crew's sailing resumes. The selection committee will be made up of the TSA officers. The criteria for selection will mirror those of the US Sailing criteria (noted that we do not have a qualifying regatta therefore no points awarded to any applicant for that criteria); please address these requirements in resumes and/or cover email:
