For decades, SBJSA has been and is a summer sailing and water recreation education center founded in 1956 on Great Sodus Bay NY. In the past 60+ years we have served thousands of families and children as they enjoy learning and using our watercraft and facilities. More recently, we also provide access to Sodus Bay and boating education for people of all ages through our Community Boating membership program and our fleet of boats.

SBJSA is a 501(c)3 tax exempt organization that relies on tuition and fundraising to operate. We currently have over 70 watercraft and one of the finest sailing centers in the area.


Our Mission:


SBJSA is committed to making the joys of sailing & other watersports available to everyone, building lifelong boaters & fostering responsible eco-awareness & stewardship of our natural resource, Great Sodus Bay on Lake Ontario.  Fun activities on the water are at the core of our educational/recreational programs & our community partnerships. Reaching out to both locals & visitors, including the underserved, we promote teamwork, leadership, community spirit, & healthy lives.
