High School Sailing

The high school sailing program at Carolina Yacht Club offers students access to a formal, co-ed varsity sport. No sailing experience is required to join. All high school students, plus 8th graders, are eligible to join the high school sailing team and represent their New Hanover County high school and the club.

High school sailing has two primary seasons — spring and fall. Practices are held after school, and teams participate in regattas as part of the North division of the South Atlantic Interscholastic Sailing Association.

Sailors also participate in winter practices and fun events. During the summer, high school sailors can continue sailing through the CYC 420 sessions and race team. The Collegiate 420 is a two-person sailboat currently used in high school and college regattas.

The program at CYC focuses on skills such as teamwork, division of labor, sail trim, rig set-up, and strategy and tactics that can be transferred to other sailboats that sailors may sail in the future.

High school sailing:

  • Provides an inclusive team environment
  • Builds teamwork and fosters friendships
  • Requires physical fitness and critical thinking
  • Develops lifelong skills and a love for sailing

Registration opens in July 2021.
