Sailing

The UNC Sailing club is a way for both experienced and beginning sailors to get out on the water here at UNC. We teach beginning skill members all the way up through the competitive racing level. The club has a fleet of 8 new 420’s, small two person sailboats, and a team of coaches ready to teach students how to sail. Our competitive racing team travels around the Southeast to compete against other schools, and we sail at Jordan Lake, just a 15-20 minute drive from campus.
