Clearwater Community Sailing Center Named US Sailing Team Sperry Top-Sider Training Center


In 2014 The US Sailing Team Sperry Top-Sider  named Clearwater Community Sailing Center (CCSC) of Clearwater, Florida, an official US Sailing Team Sperry Top-Sider Training Center. As part of its new role, CCSC acquired three brand-new 2.4mR Paralympic keelboats, two SKUD-18 Paralympic keelboats, and four Laser Radial Olympic dinghies. US Sailing Team Sperry Top-Sider athletes will be granted access to the venue and this equipment throughout the year, for both personal training sessions and full-team training camps. With this new partnership, CCSC firmly cemented its place as a leading contributor in the U.S. effort to produce a winning national Olympic and Paralympic team, and to cultivate a more effective development pathway for future Olympians and Paralympians.

CCSC recently hosted the US Disabled Championship November 18th-20th 2016. This US Sailing National Championship is one of the oldest sailing regattas in the U.S. for sailors with disabilities. The talented field often includes Paralympians, current or former US Sailing Team members, and new contenders.
