Welcome to BLSA!

Brookville Lake Sailing Association is a fun-loving group of sailors from all over the Tri-State area. Sailing – from cruising to racing and voyaging – is our passion.

We sail on Brookville Lake in Franklin and Union Counties in southeastern Indiana.

This is one of the few lakes in the region where dinghies, day-sailors and full-sized cruising sailboats have room to run.  Above all, we’re a family-oriented group who love to sail and enjoy the camaraderie of others who feel the same way.

We offer sailing fun for all levels of ability. From first-timers to experienced cruisers and racers, we welcome everyone interested in sailing to join our community. 

2020 Hanna Creek Dock Status

The Hanna Creek Docks (The Home port for the BLSA) have been closed for the 2020 sailing season. This closer is due to winter storm damage to the walkway. The walkway was pull off the shore, twisted and buried into the lake floor mud. This also took out the power grid for the docks and boat lift. The current status from the DNR is not make repairs this year but to replace the docks with new and upgrade the electrical for the 2021 season. We are all hopeful that the approved funding for this project stays intact and all is completed on time for next season. This will obviously have an affect on club social and racing activities. Please keep an eye on your email inbox for updates regarding scheduled events.

Covid-19 & the 2020 BLSA Season

The plans were set and then our worlds were turn upside down with COVID-19.  We had announcements and plans that we wanted to share, but the global stage took priority.   The time has come that we want to talk about our 2020 season and the impact COVID-19 will have on all of us at the lake.

SOCIALS & RAFT-UPS – At this time, all socials and raft-ups for the year are temporarily cancelled.  We will follow the Indiana Governor on his rules for gatherings.  Once we are allowed to have gatherings large enough to have socials again, we will bring them back.  We will still release the social calendar set for the summer just so you can mark it on your calendar, in hopes that we will be able to have a couple of events by the end of summer.

RACING – The racing schedule should not be impacted by any guidance currently provided by the state or DNR.  In the off-season, there was a major upgrade made to the committee boat.  The committee boat has a new outboard motor.  When it comes time to race, we might have to limit the Captain’s meeting to only one member of the crew.   If you would like to volunteer for committee duty, please reach out to Dan CaJacob, Race Director.

It is imperative that we practice the proper social distancing and follow the guidelines set out by health professionals.  The last thing we want is to find out we have spread this disease to our friends.  Please stay safe and healthy.
