"The CISA Advanced Racing clinic personifies the ultimate
discipline and training style you need to become a champion. No matter how
much your skill has progressed, you will benefit from this clinic. I was a
member of the US Sailing Team and multiple national champion and attended
the CISA clinic when I was 19 years old (2002). It felt like my first year
and there was so much new information. The clinic knows how to
bump up the level of coaching every year, expecting the sailors to become
champions. I've done five CISA clinics and won three of the post-clinic
regattas. I still know I can take a lot back from a CISA clinic if I did it
again. CISA is one big reason why I was the top American at the Laser Worlds
The California International Sailing Association (CISA), a non-profit organization established in 1971, benefits youth amateur sailing. Through travel grants, direct sponsorship, and racing clinics CISA has helped amateur youth meet their sailing goals.
The result of CISA's support of youth sailors affirms the goal of our project. Since 1984, CISA has advanced more than $5 million to sailors and campaigns throughout the country. Past students of CISA clinics include U.S. and Youth World Champions, One-Design Class Winners and Olympic Medallists. Beyond sailing accomplishments our students also achieve academic and civic award. We hope that a CISA student not only walks away from one of our clinics knowing how to find the best hole on a starting line, but also the benefits of long-term project planning and continuing involvement in the sport of Sailing.
CISA relies on contributions of corporations and individuals to provide support of amateur sailors. For the benefit of our sponsors CISA maintains tax exempt status under section 501.c.3 of the Internal Revenue Code.
