Overview

The NC State University co-ed dinghy sailing team competes in the ICSA's South Atlantic Intercollegiate Sailing Association conference and participates in regattas during the Fall and Spring seasons. Fielding both a co-ed and women's team, our student-athletes maintain a rigorous practice and training schedule, both on the water and off, in addition to a demanding academic workload. Competition is fierce, but participating in intercollegiate racing offers an exciting and rewarding path to becoming a world-class sailor. We compete using Flying Juniors (FJs) and 420s, both highly maneuverable and responsive dinghies. The Race Team travels to regattas from Miami to Virginia to Boston on a regular basis. Our home lake and practice facility is Lake Wheeler in Raleigh, NC. 

Our Conference

As a part of SAISA, we compete on a regular basis against some of the most storied programs in College Sailing including the 2013 ICSA/Gill Co-ed National Champion College of Charleston, perennial sailing powerhouses such as the University of South Florida, Eckerd College, and even in-state rivals UNC-Wilmington, the University of North Carolina, and Duke. For the past 6 years, NC State's sailing team has succeeded in reaching regional championships, ending the 2016-17 season ranked 11th of 28 teams in SAISA and as the top-ranked team in North Carolina for the 5th year running.  

About College Sailing

Sanctioned by the ICSA and US Sailing, "college sailing began on an informal, club basis in the 1890's, and organized racing started in 1928. It has grown to include more than 200 active colleges, and racing now occurs on every weekend during fall and spring seasons and on many weekends during the winter. It is a truly coeducational sport, and it has proved itself the best incubator for the development of racing skills. Former college sailors have always numbered significantly among Olympic medallists and America's Cup competitors."
