Sailing Associations in Wickford

The WSA (Wickford Sailing Association) was a program with the objective fostering sailing skills in beginning, intermediate and racing sailors in our community that instills fun, responsibility, and a passion for sailing.

Through hands-on experience and class instruction, WSA hopes to produce well-rounded sailors who are at home aboard a sailing dinghy, a cruising sailboat or a racing boat. Above all, the goal is to have students safely enjoy their time on the water.

Boats in the WSA fleet include Optimist Prams and Club 420’s, small keelboat sloops and three power support boats. All full-time instructors have been certified in the U.S. Sailing Instructor Level One course. They are also current with CPR and First Aid.

The WSA meet and sailed at the Wickford Yacht Club in Wickford Harbor.
