About Us


Coconut Grove Sailihg Club 1946

CGSC Clubhouse Classic

The purpose of the Coconut Grove Sailing Club is to encourage the sport of sailing, to promote the science of seamanship and navigation, to sponsor cruises, races and instructional classes, and to foster a spirit of cooperation and good fellowship.

1946, the Coconut Grove Sailing Club was started by a group of Miami residents based on a shared love for sailing, a passion for Biscayne Bay and, a spirit of volunteerism in providing community service. The founding members formed the club to provide a safe venue to teach children to sail and to run sailboat regattas for the community. The original CGSC had no club house, merely a storage shack. There were no moorings; sailors simply anchored out in the basin.
Over the years, CGSC became a leader in the international sailing community.  Thousands have learned to sail at CGSC, and if you’re just dipping your big toe into the friendly waters of Biscayne Bay, you couldn’t find a better place.

On any given weekend junior sailors routinely participate in a wide range of programs that are run by US Sailing Certified Instructors.  CGSC has introduced over ten thousand children in the community to Biscayne Bay and the sport of sailing with CGSC’s well-known US Sailing sanctioned “Learn to Sail” programs. Each child is taught how to rig, sail the boat, and be responsible for a Pram sailboat, a single-handed boat used for pleasure sailing as well as competition by many children of many ages.
In addition to sailing education and race management programs, the CGSC is very community minded. We are generous with our club space, and welcome community non-profit organizations to the club by opening up our meeting room at no charge. The club also offers community outreach programs. We recently have joined forces with the Miami Dade Public School System and their Marine Science Academy.
Today, the CGSC continues to be a leader in the sailing community and continues to stand by its mission by offering adult and children sailing classes, racing, education programs and community service sailing programs.  All sailing instruction courses are sanctioned by US Sailing Association.
