WELCOME to LISCA
LISCA is open to current and past owners of Catalina sailboats of all sizes. We offer sailing events both on and off the water, educational seminars, forums with resources for the care use and retrofitting of your Catalina yacht, as well as crusing activities for our members.If you are new to sailing a Catalina, this organization is particularly beneficial to you. Through LISCA, you will find it easy to meet fellow sailors who are knowledgeable and eager to share their know-how to enhance your boating experience. If you’ve owned a Catalina for awhile, we welcome you to share your stories, experiences and boating knowledge,we can all learn something new from a fellow sailor.
Explore our website using the tabs that organize the information by topic. You’ll find articles available to the general public covering weather, calendar of events, tidbits specific to our boats and recipes for the cruising life. There is also a “Members Only” area that provides cruising information, a roster listing, mooring locations and our newsletters. Catalina Owners have been active on Long Island since the early 1980s, organized originally by boat size into Fleets. Then, in the mid-1990s, the Fleets joined together under the ‘umbrella’ organization known as LISCA to streamline operations and consolidate finances, communications and activities. The all-volunteer officers manage local activities as well as coordinate with Catalina to provide articles for Main Sheet, the Catalina owners’ quarterly magazine, and support national events.
We welcome you to join in the fun, so don’t delay! Go to the “Why Join” tab to learn what we’re about and then the “Join/Renew” tab to submit your application to become a LISCA member or renew your existing membership. It’s easy, and you can complete the process online.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact any one of the Officers listed in the “Officers” section under the “About Us” tab. We look forward to welcoming you and sharing our love of sailing with you and your family.
