The Eastern Shore Sailing Association (ESSA) was established in 1974 to promote and foster the sport of sailing and sailing activities, a better appreciation of sailing and basic seamanship, preservation of amn environment conducive to the sport of sailing and educating the public about sailing. ESSA is not a yacht club, but a group of sailors of all ages who are passionate about the sport and related activities whether racing, cruising, or day sailing. Our two fleets, the Choptank Fleet in Cambridge, MD and the Tangier Fleet in Tyaskin, MD conduct weeknight buoy racing, special event racing over longer courses, day sails and picnics, and organized cruises to destinations around the Bay and beyond.
Find out more about us from our brochure "Come Sail With ESSA" or our video "Sailing With ESSA" below.
