About Us

The US Naval Sailing Association – USNSA – is an organization of military-affiliated, predominantly Navy members, formed to promote fleet readiness, develop professionalism, develop a competitive spirit, and impart a love of the sea and skills that may be used in recreational opportunities throughout a life time using small craft training programs. We also encourage and assist Commanding Officers in promoting boating and sailing as part of their training and recreational programs. These missions are carried out through individual members and branches established on or near military bases worldwide.More...

We teach sailing and seamanship in the Navy to make competent seamen of our personnel, who will be the naval leaders of the future. We aren't interested in making yachtsmen of them. We encourage them to enter races in order to find an atmosphere which, like combat, stretches ability and endurance to the limit and allows character to emerge which can reach for that extra margin required for victory.

We send our personnel to sea to learn that most basic characteristic of a professional seaman: a deep-seated sense of humility in the face of nature and her master. Our objective is simple – to produce the best possible sailor or officer for the fleet.

Captain John B. Bonds, USN (Ret.)
