The ASU Sailing Team competes against other colleges and universities in the Pacific Coast Collegiate Sailing Conference (PCCSC) which is a member of the Intercollegiate Sailing Association (ICSA). We primarily sail Club FJs in venues in Southern California, such as; San Diego, Long Beach, Santa Barbara and Newport Beach.
Not only do we compete against schools in our conference, but occasionally we sail with schools in the Northwest conference and other college programs from across the country.more info
ASU Sailing is one of the only organizations in Arizona to offer an adaptive sailing program designed to make sailing possible for all. Our Martin 16 with its electronic controls makes it possible for anyone who breaths to sail independently.
It’s designed so that a person sits low inside the boat instead of leaning over the side. This allows people with special needs to sail alone with training.more info

In addition to our racing team and accessible sailing programs, ASU Sailing teaches an introductory sailing course.
Our instructors are all active sailors with years of experience, certified by US Sailing to teach with a high level of quality and safety. This course is taught with US Sailing’s nationally recognized curriculum. We use the text, “Learn Sailing Right,” (included in the course fee, also available for purchase online).
The class includes approximately twelve hours of classroom time and 48 hours of on-the-water training. This offers a good balance of theoretical and physical learning.more info
