About the Crescent Sailing Association

Whether it be on Lake St. Clair or elsewhere in the United States, Crescent Sail Yacht Club sailors participate in sailing and racing events throughout the year and have excelled in local, regional, national, and international competition. CSYC has made a commitment to the Junior Program and successfully recruits skilled sailing instructors and coaches. Instructors and coaches are certified by the United States Sailing Association (US Sailing), complete with CPR, First Aid Certificate, and Concussion training. 

Our Mission 

The Mission of the Crescent Sailing Association is to develop solid foundational sailing skills and to instill a love for the sport of sailing that will serve as a foundation for the sport's future.


We take our jobs at CSA seriously. This means setting goals and taking responsibility.  Our coaches work with sailors in making sure sailing is not only fun, but that sailors are developing and expanding their individual skill set.


It takes dedication to excel – we understand the value of hard work and instill that philosophy in our junior sailors  -- that with dedication will come success.

Hard Work

We believe that Dedication + Hard Work = Success.  It's that simple.  If you look at competitive sailing today, the winners have been doing it for some time.  We understand their is a learning curve and it's foundations are dedication and hard work.


At CSA we believe in TEAMWORK and we are a team player.  At CSA we work with other DRYA Clubs in practicing and at regattas, and support SE Michigan High School Sailing.

Playing By The Rules

One of the most important things in life is playing by the rules and not cutting corners.
Ethics is very important -- on and off the water.
