We are the Pearson Sailing Association of the Chesapeake Bay

Welcome to our 2020 Pearson Sailing Association (PSA) website.

We have 50+ easy going fun sailors with sailboats spread throughout the Chesapeake Bay. We enjoy monthly events including raft-ups, races, and rendezvous. We mix it up with sea and land-based events including a holiday party in the off-season and a sock burning in the Spring. We help each other become better sailors and have a great time together.

From March through October, we plan at least one activity per month. We do our best to make each activity accessible, so most events can be attended by both sea and land. Please check our Calendar and Upcoming Events pages for the latest information.

Our club was founded in 1969 as the Pearson 35 Association. Our membership gradually expanded to include all classes of sailboats made by Pearson. We are formal enough to have association officers and a club burgee, but do not have formal bylaws or rules. Our purpose is to increase member enjoyment of sailing in one of the greatest cruising grounds in the world!

New members are welcome. Please reach out via Email and/or download our Application Form to join.
