The RTP High School Sailing Team

Welcome! The RTP High School Sailing Team includes sailors from many high schools in the Triangle area. All high-schoolers are welcome, whether completely new to sailing or experienced at sailboat racing.

During the spring and fall seasons we hold practice Tuesdays and Thursdays, meet at the Lake Crabtree boat ramp, and Wednesdays at Crosswinds Boating Center on Jordan Lake. We sail 420's, which are small, simple, two-person boats. We always have at least two coaches on the water in small power boats. The more experienced sailors have the opportunity to travel to regattas and race against other high school teams.

Practices for Fall 2022 begin on September 6 and run through November 3. On August 28 we'll have the season kick-off for sailors and parents at Crosswinds Boating Center, with plenty of information and pizza! Details to come.

Prospective sailors are welcome to attend a practice or two to check it out before joining. It's all about learning to sail while having lots of fun on and off the water!
