Thistle Fleet #66

Thistle Fleet 66

Want to go fast? Almost faster than the wind? Then you need to sail in a Thistle!

CLSA is home to 7, privately owned Thistles. Thistles can be found sailing most weekends at our club. Our fleet also has Thistles that are available for qualified skippers to sail. There is no charge to experience this high performance sailing. Please let us know if you are interested in using one of our boats.

Thistle Regattas:

Thistle Fleet #66 is the host of two, annual regattas. For more information on the regattas, including SI, NOR, and Registration please visit: Thistle Fleet 66 Regattas.

Thursday Night Sailing:

Thistle Fleet 66 sails on the water on Thursday evenings from April to October. These informal races start at 6pm and run until dusk. The informal races are intended to work on crew development and tune our racing skills for club, regional and national events. Thistle Thursday night sailing is open to anyone interested in sailing on a high performance sailboat.

Monthly Fleet 66 book club social:

Each month the fleet gathers to learn new techniques on how to sail faster. An article on sailing techniques is identified and then discussion follows on how those techniques can be applied in our boats.

If you are interested in sailing with us or would like to know more. Contact any member of our Fleet or email us at
