The Fastest Growing Sport in Ohio! Teams from Dublin, Upper Arlington, Bexley, and others are joining teams already competing in central Oho, around the State, and across the Country. No experience needed.
Competitive sailing involves fast-paced, short-course racing, where sailboats race each other without any handicaps, starting at the same time, sailing a set course and the winner of each race is the first to cross the finish line scoring points based on finish position with the lowest points winning. Teams compete locally, regionally and nationally in regattas and championships.
High School sailing typically operates with the permission of your high school using Leatherlips Yacht Club facilities, equipment and coaches. It is a pay to play sport.
Open to all students, grade 7 to 12

What is the Time Commitment?
High School Sailing has two seasons: Spring and Fall. Spring season starts early April through to middle of May. Fall season starts late August through to the end of October. The more time spent in the boat is the best way to grow as a sailor.
What do we sail?
Most HS sailing is “fleet” racing. It is done in double-handed one-design dinghies such as the Club 420. All fleets are registered with Midwest Interscholastic Sailing Association (MISSA).
There could be extra costs for regattas & school lifejacket coverings
