The UNC Chapel Hill Sailing Club is both a competitive team and a recreational club. Our club gives classroom and on-the-water instruction to both beginner and advanced sailors. Club members participate in weekly clinics and race team practices held at Jordan Lake as well as social events, abroad opportunities and competitive regattas. We are a student-run club and encourage all sailors to join regardless of past experience.

The race team is a member of the ICSA and competes in the South Atlantic Intercollegiate Sailing Association (SAISA). We compete and travel to a variety of regattas across the eastern seaboard. Travel cost are covered with membership dues. Please reach out to us with any questions you may have. Go Heels!
