About

The Jacomo Sailing Club is located on beautiful Lake Jacomo near Lee's Summit and Blue Springs, Missouri in Jackson County. Proudly serving its members for nearly 60 years, JSC focuses on both recreational sailing and racing. Education is the backbone of our organization, and we offer many adult and youth learn to sail opportunities. We also have a lot of fun together! The club hosts social events throughout the year.




Directions

 

Jacomo Sailing Center

22103 SW Woods Chapel Road

Blue Springs, MO 64015

Thanks to the generosity of Jackson Country Parks and Rec, we use this facility for the classroom portion of our Adult Learn to Sail program, clinics and other club meetings.

 

Lake Jacomo Marina

7401 W Park Road 
Blue Springs, MO 64015

We use the boat ramp near the Lake Jacomo Marina on race days. Our club boats are located in the West Dry Storage lot near the marina, and so this ramp is also utilized for putting our club boats in the water. For the dinghy portions of our Learn to Sail programs, we meet in the parking/rigging-lot near this boat ramp. The hill above the marina is also a great place to watch our Sunday races.

 

South Boat Dock

9200 Beach Rd

Lee's Summit, MO 64086

This location is used as a meeting point for our Learn to Sail programs. Some of our members use dock slips here to keep their sailboats ready to go!

 

Sailboat Cove

7401 West Park Road

Blue Springs, MO 64015

Sailboat Cove is home to many sailboats, stored in dock slips and on mooring balls. This location is used as a meeting point during the cruiser portions of our Learn to Sail programs. There is also a Dry Storage lot located here.

History

The Jacomo Sailing Club was founded in 1958, a year before Lake Jacomo was completed. By late 1958, the dam was completed, the gravel roads were nearly done and the anchors were down in Sailboat Cove. The dry sail lot and the fishing docks were planned, but the lake was dry. The scheduled opening of Lake Jacomo was spring of 1960.

 

The founders of JSC, a group of 12 men, met in Kelly's Bar in Westport and planned the formation of the club. At that time there was no public sailing in the Kansas City area. Most of the large public lakes that now surround this area had not yet been built.

 

For many years, JSC was a social club that focused on racing. Today, as a 501(c)(3) organization, education is the backbone of what we do. Through both recreational sailing and racing, we are proud to continue the legacy of the Jacomo Sailing Club, helping to build a love for sailing in the Kansas City area and beyond.
