Welcome to the Neuse Sailing Association

41 Years of Sailing (1973 - 2014)

        The Neuse Sailing Association (NSA) is the “friendliest club on the North Carolina coast” and offers a busy schedule of activities that appeal to all boating interests and age groups. We offer numerous social events and a variety of cruising and educational opportunities. Founded in 1973, the NSA is one of the oldest active sailing clubs in North Carolina. We have built a tradition of enjoying every aspect of being on the water along the beautiful North Carolina coast.

        We are a fun-loving group and we strive to provide a comfortable and welcoming atmosphere for everyone. Based in Oriental, the club sponsors cruises to New Bern, Belhaven, Beaufort, Morehead City, Ocracoke, Cape Lookout and areas throughout the Neuse River and Pamlico Sound. In the off-season, we offer educational seminars on a variety of topics. To learn more about the NSA, go to About. And scroll down this page for Club News and Coming Events. We look forward to seeing you on the water!
