Welcome to the Asheville Sailing Club!

We are Western North Carolina locals who enjoy competitive weekend 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 added to this year’s schedule.  That’s something almost every weekend as well as Wednesday nights during season.

Follow us on Facebook.

We want to help you, so please call:

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.  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.   Entrance to 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 Signup Page

All members have a traditional duty to serve as racing official “PRO” for one race each season.  If you joined the club, we all are counting on you to sign up.  If you are brand spanking new, don’t worry, we always make sure you are supported.   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.

Commodore’s Corner:

Ahoy!  A cool seminar all about how to start your boat well and safely in a sailboat race.  Racing is for all levels, and that means beginners.  It is a great way to learn how to handle your boat.  The lesson will be engaging and informative no matter what level skipper you are.  See you at the Marina:  March 25  1:00 pm.

Sailing in March:  The club chopped a big hole in the ice and hosted an educational sailing day for a pile of students from Warren Wilson College.  The club launched boats and showed the new sailors all the ropes.

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 1st and 3rd Saturdays throughout our season.

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.
