The American Sailing Association and the Tampa Bay Area
ASA Sailing Schools Present the 2010 Members Event

Clearwater Beach, Florida

September 10th to September 17th

You are invited for a week of fun in the sun, sail on the beautiful waters of the Gulf of Mexico or just enjoy the amazing white sugar sand of Clearwater Beach. A combination of a land and sea holiday for both experienced sailors and new sailors alike. Stay at the luxurious Marriott Sand Key Resort, which overlooks both the Gulf of Mexico and the Intracoastal Waters of Clearwater Harbor.

The event takes place for one full week, from Friday, September 10th to Friday September 17th of 2010. You can try small boat sailing from the adjoining Community Sailing Center or just a casual day sail on a variety of different keel boats provided by the local ASA schools. The activities will range from fun races to flying a spinnaker, educational clinics from knot tying to navigation, eco tours from the Marine Aquarium, an Island Party and of course a dress like a Pirate Bash!

If you are not a sailor the area offers the Travel Channels Number 1 Best Beach along with lots of local flavors to sample just a walk or Jolley Trolley ride away.  The Tampa Bay Area ASA Schools and the ASA Staff are looking forward to hosting what can best be described as sailing camp for adults. So sign up early and join in the fun!

Gulf Oil Spill Note: Please note that ASA is closely monitoring the BP Gulf of Mexico oil spill. Based on current information from local authorities, it is very unlikely that the oil spill will make landfall on Cllearwater, St. Pete or other area beaches. However, if the ASA later deems it necessary to cancel "American Sailing Week 2010" in the event that the oil spill impacts any activities or events, any and all deposits paid to the Marriott will be refunded in full. As participants are responsible for their own air transportation, as with any trip, ASA recommends that participants flying to the area purchase flight cancellation/trip interruption insurance.
