About the U.S. Naval Sailing Association

The purpose of the U.S. Naval Sailing Association is to support sail training and recreational sailing for members of all the armed forces.  It provides volunteer instructors and conducts qualification tests.  Although the USNSA is an independent non-profit organization, it is officially recognized in an advisory and assistance capacity by the Chief of Naval Personnel. Most member clubs are supported by non-appropriated morale, welfare, and recreation funds.
