About DSA

DSA Information
Delta Sailing Association was established in 1949 to foster sailboat racing, and sailing in general. The DSA grounds are located at Hernando Point on beautiful Arkabutla lake in Desoto county Mississippi. The sailing season runs from March through October depending on water level. Two club races are scheduled every Saturday and Sunday during the season. DSA is home to three active racing fleets: Memphis Lightning fleet #274, Thistle fleet #72 and Hobie Fleet #134. There are many other types of sailboats as well.
