About Community Sailing Center

The Community Sailing Center is a lively hub on the shores of Lake Champlain, less than a mile from downtown Burlington, VT, where community members and visitors gather to laugh, learn, and play on the lake together. The CSC was founded in 1994 as a place for the community to connect with the lake and each other, where sailing and paddling are tools that enrich people’s lives, teach valuable life lessons, offer a unique educational experience, and instill a sense of ownership in one of Vermont’s most valuable natural resources - Lake Champlain. In 2017, the Community Sailing Center completed construction of the first new building on the Burlington Waterfront in over 20 years. Starting in 2018, this beautiful new facility is available to the community to rent for gatherings and events. Be one of the first to celebrate your special occasion in this purpose-built, Net Zero building and support our mission to provide lake access, recreation, and education for all.
