Promoting the Sport of Sailing Since 1957
"A Tradition of Sailing Excellence" is not only the Halifax Sailing Association's motto, but a fitting description for a club that has dedicated itself to promoting the sport of sailing and perpetuating the values of camaraderie and community.
In 1957, twelve sailors organized what was to formally become the Halifax Sailing Association. They had vision, determination and passion. Their intent: "To find a better way to attract more boats, more sailors, and to organize better races and other sailing events." This continues to be a tradition we have upheld for over 50 years. HSA is one of the oldest and most active sailing clubs in Central Florida.
In keeping with the Club's original purpose, we sponsor many races and other sailing activities and provide opportunities to introduce both children and adults to this relaxing sport year after year. We also provide affordable sailing lessons so new sailors can learn to sail the correct way, from experienced, certified instructors. Our facility is located on the Halifax River, close to downtown Daytona Beach, Florida.
Halifax Sailing Association is a not-for-profit, 501 (c) 3 Organization
Melinda Matheus has developed a gofundme site to help us raise funds for recovering from the damage caused by Hurricane Irma. We would, of course, appreciate any donation. We would also appreciate your forewarding this link to anyone you think might help our cause.
Thank you for your support !

The outer gates on Fremont Court and at the end of Bellvue Avenue have been locked because the city didn't want anyone trying to launch boats at the public boat ramp because of the damaged docks. The city has put up a barricade at the top of the ramp preventing people from launching boats. Because of this, the city has decided it is no longer necessary to lock the gates. In an exchange of emails that I was copied in on a number of city officials, including the police department, made this decision last friday.
Rob Hall, who is going to rebuild our wooden pier, wants to bring in his raw materials next week and stage them on the grass at the south end of our steps which go down to the water. Please leave this area clear and the dirt road leading to this area. He said he will try to bring them in mid week and hopes to bring his barge down mid week or the end of the week to start working on the pier.
