About Us

Cave Run Sailing Association

We are a non-profit organization compromised of individuals and families who love sailing and want to share our passion with you. The world of sailing offers a range of activities in which you can become involved, such as racing and cruising on Cave Run Lake, our Youth Sailing program, year round social events, entertaining Trip Tale presentations and sailing instruction.

We offer Youth Sailing Classes at Jacobson Park in Lexington, Kentucky each summer, as well as Beginning to Advanced Adult Sailing Classes and Certifications at Cave Run Lake in Morehead, Kentucky and Kentucky Lake in western Kentucky.

Our race season is from April to September each year. If you want to experience sailing, you are invited to join any of our events. We will place you as crew on a member’s boat or you can have fun swimming and sliding on the race committee boat.

We also have outstanding annual destination cruises with a wide range of worldly locations at exceptional prices. Most recently, small groups (or flotillas) have sailed the Amalfi Coast of Italy, Mallorca, Spain; Victoria, British Columbia and the San Juan Islands off Seatle’s coast.

Come join us in all the fun!!!

Cave Run Youth Sailing Academy

Creating Opportunities for Our Younger Sailors

With great excitement it is my pleasure to present the newest addition to our CRSA family – the Cave Run Youth Sailing Academy, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit!  This means you can now deduct your contributions to Youth Sailing! This will allow us to raise more money to promote sailing programs for young people. We plan to offer additional opportunities for older kids (teenagers and college level) through our sunfish fleet and offer scholarships to underprivileged youth who want to learn to sail.

How can you help?

  • Volunteer with our Opti’s program for 7-12 children!
  • Volunteer with our next level of sailing-teenagers!
  • Contribute any amount you can and consider naming us as a benefactor in your will. We can grow and give the gift of sailing for life through your help!

Call me today and let’s plan for our future!
