2020 Resources – COVID-19 and other online resources


ECSA’s Commodore’s Trophy is awarded to an ECSA member that has made a significant contribution to our Sailing Community. It’s not an annual award, it is reserved to recognize those that truly make a difference for all of us. On November 16, 2019 at ECSA’s Annual Dinner at Pine Orchard, ECSA awarded the Commodore’s Trophy to Judy Gibbs for the incredible amount of time, effort and results that she has given to ECSA. Please follow this link to read all of Judy’s contributions over the years.

Please consider a donation to our Grant Fund

ECSA is committed to promoting sailboat racing and one of our methods is the ECSA Grant Fund. It is designed to provide financial help to serious racers who are mounting a regional, national or international campaign.

If you are mounting a serious racing campaign, send the ECSA Board of Directors a letter explaining your campaign, plans and expenses. The Board meets monthly to decide which requests merit consideration. You can help by donating to the Grant Fund when you become a member, and you can do it on line.
