Englewood Sailing Association - ESA

The Englewood Sailing Association, Inc. is a spin-off from the Lemon Bay Rag Haulers, a sailing and social organization, founded in 1990. The Rag Haulers started a very successful Youth Sailing Program in the Spring of 2002.

In cooperation with the Englewood YMCA, thirty-four volunteers worked with nineteen youngsters in a four week program. The program included boating safety and hands on sailing. On completion of the program, it was obvious that it had provided a very positive experience for the youth and that it deserved continuance and expansion. It was decided by the membership of the Rag Haulers that the demands of such a program were beyond the scope of their organization.

The Englewood Sailing Association, Inc. was then formed as a non-profit corporation for the purpose of providing sailing instructions for the youth of Englewood.


ESA is an all-volunteer, non-profit organization that teaches affordable, small boat sailing to kids and adults. New volunteers encouraged to inquire.

The Englewood Sailing Association, Inc. is an all volunteer, not for profit 501(c)(3) organization established in 2002. We teach small boat sailing in a safe, fun and educational waterfront environment by sharing our skills, knowledge, and resources with Englewood area youth and adults. To achieve this goal, we are proud to be working in cooperation with the Sarasota County Parks and Recreation Department and have partnered with the Englewood YMCA to provide instruction in sailing, water safety and respect for our environment.

Promoting the positive development
of our youth through sailing.
