Clinton Lake Sailing Association
CLSA is a great place to practice social distancing! To ensure the safety of our members and their families during the Covid-19 pandemic, a number of practices have been put into place for the 2020 season. As a club and individual members, the Clinton Lake Sailing Association will follow the federal guidelines plus all state and local requirements. Masks must be worn at all times while on the dock and anywhere on our property when someone cannot avoid being within 6 feet of another person.
