Chautauqua Lake Community Sailing Foundation

Teaching the community to sail, race, and love the sport of sailing!

Welcome to the CLCSF, where our goal is to provide an easy and affordable way for everyone to enjoy sailing on Lake Chautauqua.  We focus on High School team racing, as well as youth through adult sailing courses and education. CLCSF is a Non-profit Community-based organization founded in 2015. Our boats are located just off of Lakewood Beach in Lakewood, NY.
