Asheville Sailing Club
Since 1969

Welcome!

The Asheville Sailing Club at Lake Julian in beautiful Western North Carolina has members from all ages, cultures, and vocations. It is a welcoming place for everyone to enjoy competitive sailing, leisurely sailing, and participate in social events. Two regattas each month during the spring, summer, and fall seasons are offered for those who opt for a more racing-focused experience, while social sailing events such as fun-sailing afternoon outings are available for those who wish for a more laid-back time on the water.

Check our calendar for specific events during the week and weekends. 


The community built around Asheville Sailing Club is unlike many in the area. With the many backgrounds and ages represented by our members, there is always something new to learn about the sport of sailing. Good sportsmanship and sharing of knowledge is encouraged in the club, cultivating a strong bond between members and improving skills and tactics across the board. 

Fun Sailing!

By popular demand many more casual type sailing races have been added to the schedule this year.  In addition to Wednesday nights, we have fun, low pressure sailing events on non-regatta Saturdays throughout our season.  These are fantastic social and sailing extravaganzas!
