Welcome to the Asheville Sailing Club!
We are Western North Carolina locals who enjoy competitive or fun sailing and the good company of fellow sailors. Based on Lake Julian, the Asheville Sailing Club encourages good sportsmanship and skill improvement through practice and sharing. We offer two regattas a month during the Spring, Summer and Fall months. Our Club has as much fun off the water as on! Social Sailing, Fun Sailing Afternoons, and Easy Pursuit type races are included in this year’s schedule. That’s something almost every weekend as well as Wednesday nights during the season.

About Our Club:
The Asheville Sailing club is a social club that organizes sailboat races and social events. We sail our boats from the Marina area of Lake Julian Park. The club is a registered non-profit organization. It is important to know that Lake Julian Park owns the Marina which includes: Buildings, Lockers, Land Boat Storage, Picnic Shelters, Wet slips, Boat Ramps, Docks, and other Park items. Only a paid rental agreement from the Park allows any Boat/Trailer to be stored on Land or Wet Slips. Use of the Marina Facility is only allowed to those who have paid for land or wet slips for their boat/trailer. Please see the Park Ranger for details about how to rent a spot for a boat or locker. There is a waiting list presently. Park Supervisor: phone – (828) 684-037
PRO sign up: ( Your Big Day! )
Signups available Race PRO Schedule and RC Signup Page
All members have an incredible opportunity and indeed, obligation to serve as racing official “PRO” (principal race official) for one race each season. If you joined the club, we all are counting on you to sign up for your PRO duty. If you are brand spanking new, don’t worry, we always make sure you are supported completely with trained officials at your side. Training classes are provided for those new to the club. The “PRO” assembles his own small team of two volunteers for that day to help. Be sure to remind the park staff on Wednesday so they can schedule dock cleaning in time for the races.
Huge Move! The sailing club will be launching its full blown Youth Sailing program this year. A fleet of prams has already been purchased and instructors are lining up to help. Find out all about it here: Youth Sailing
More Fun Type Sailing: By popular demand many more casual type sailing races are added to the schedule this year. In addition to the Wednesday nights, look to see these super fun sailing events on non-points racing Saturdays throughout our season. These are fantastic social and sailing extravaganzas.
U.S. Sailing: Did you know that since the club is now registered to U.S. sailing that all members get those privileges? This means that most clubs across the USA will recognize you as an honored associate. Be sure to mention this as you have opportunities to sail at other clubs.
