The only requirement for membership in CTSA is an interest in traditional or classic sail boats. We loosely define those as a boat whose basic design is older than 1970. While CTSA was founded to support traditional Chesapeake working boats powered by sail, we now encompass all traditional and classic boats, whether designed for commercial use or pleasure. It is not necessary to own one – just enjoy them!
We’re an informal group. We usually hold three or four organized sails a year, meet ashore about three times a year, join in some traditional boat events around the Bay, and sail together and raft up once in a while. We put out a newsletter, WATERLOG, before each event that usually includes some notes (interesting stuff about boats, including our own, and some event results).
You’re most welcome to join us! You just need to fill out the application and send it to us with your dues ($15) and we’ll add you to our member list. For those very reasonable dues you get to participate in all of our events!
