The Community Waterfront Campus & Sailing Education Center

In 2017, powered by the Love Your Lake Capital Campaign, the Community Sailing Center completed construction of the first new building on the Burlington Waterfront in over 20 years. This year will be a year of firsts for the CSC – first sails for neighbors ages 6 to 106, first views of Burlington from the vantage point of the water, first days at camp for the tiniest sailors, first teaching moments for new instructors, and first lessons of interest for countless students aboard our ‘floating classrooms’.

For 23 years, the CSC operated from the abandoned Moran Plant, a Public Works garage, a tent, and two port-a-potties. The new Pomerleau Community Waterfront Campus & Raymond P. Sullivan Sailing Education Center brings a whole host of additional firsts for the CSC – first indoor plumbing, first year-round classrooms, and most importantly – the first time in decades that we have the space and resources to expand lake-based opportunities for our community for generations to come.

Come down this summer for a camp, lesson, kayak or sailboat rental, event – or just to say hello!IMG_8303 for website

This beautiful waterfront facility is also available to our community to rent for gatherings and events. Be one of the first to celebrate your special occasion in this purpose-built, zero-energy building and support our mission to provide lake access, recreation, and education for all!
