About Us

History

Browns Creek Sailing Association is located on Lake Guntersville at the clubhouse at the North Alabama Sailing Marina (formerly Browns Creek Sailing Marina). Thirty minutes south of Huntsville Alabama, one hour north of Birmingham, Alabama, just off Highway 69 on the west side of Guntersville, Alabama. The club, founded in 1975, is composed of sailors of all levels of seamanship who enjoy improving and honing their sport through races and their friendships through socials and after-race recaps. You do not have to have a boat slip at the marina to be a member of the association.

Racing

The club sponsors a variety of sailing races from our marina during all seasons and participates in races at other club’s locations. There are several regattas which are two days of racing with a dinner social on the evening of the first day of racing. We sponsor the Great River Race in the month of October which is a 24 hour race covering about 65 miles of river.

Cruising & Social

The club also plans social and cruising events. We have monthly cruises to various spots along Guntersville Lake. We enjoy nature cruises such as, the bat cave, a winter eagle watch, fall leaves along the river, and summer raft-ups for watching the fireworks on the Fourth or enjoying ice cream and swimming. In the late fall, we have our annual banquet, always lots of fun with great door prizes. A family oriented club, if you’re in the area, we invite you to check us out.
