About MDI Community Sailing Center

The MDI Community Sailing Center (MDICSC) is an independent non-profit organization located on Clark Point Road in Southwest Harbor, Maine. It offers maritime education and boating instruction to the general public of Mount Desert Island and surrounding coastal communities. MDICSC has become an important part of the lives of many people. It is more than just a place to sail. Since 1996 it has grown to become somewhat of a social club. It is a meeting place for both youth and adults to share their love of the ocean, the coast, and the pleasures of boating. Many of the 200 plus youth who utilize the facility each spring, summer, and fall would be at a loss without this affordable, healthy environment in which to interact.
