Our aim is to teach and nurture the lifelong enjoyment of sailing.  The atmosphere is informal and family oriented. Our clubhouse is the "Gazebo," and our waters are Mountain Lake.

Welcome Sailors!

The Mountain Lakes Sailing Association (MLSA) is dedicated to teaching your children to sail in a fun and safe environment. We offer a Learn to Sail Sunfish program on Island Beach for children 8 years and up.

"Now then, said Christopher Robin, "Where's your boat?" "I ought to say," explained Pooh as they walked down to the shore of the island, "that it isn't an ordinary boat. Sometimes it's a Boat, and sometimes it's more of an Accident, It all depends," "Depends on what?" "On whether I'm on the top of it or underneath it." - Winnie-The-Pooh by A. A. Milne.
