Clinton Lake Sailing Association and Fleet 135 are once again excited to host the Glow Regatta at Clinton Lake. If you haven't been to the Glow recently, you have probably heard about the exceptional racing, food, and fun atmosphere. Online registration and online payment are required in advance of the event. While many of our guests camp free of charge at the club, we encourage you non campers to book your rooms early at one of the local hotels.
The FSSA is one of the strongest one-design class associations in the world. Our strict adherence to the one design concept means that the Flying Scot built this year will remain compatible and competitive for years to come with newer as well as older boats. Owners of Flying Scots are assured that their boats will last for years, and its re-sale value will remain excellent. Also, the FSSA helps promote the Flying Scot which maintains the boats popularity and value.

Clinton Lake Sailing Associations offers two great introduction to sailing programs in partnership with Heartland Community College and Parkland Community College. The Flying Scot Introduction to Sailboat Racing experience provides for a 3-hour group racing experience where two students are paired up with a experienced racing instructor after a short safety and training session. This is a unique opportunity to have some fun on the water while learning something new and exciting. For those who find themselves wanting more, all students in both CLSA classes are welcome to join the fleet on a Wednesday night for additional instruction and coaching at no extra cost. Our programs are also designed to train prospective CLSA members to comfortably sail our fleet of club boats (free to rent with club membership). We also have additional training programs for those who want to crew during our weekend sailboat races.
