ASU Sailing Club - Featured Club

Dinghy Racing The ASU Sailing Club offers sailing classes that are taught by instructors certified by the US SAILING and can certify students in Small Boat Sailing. The sport is an activity and skill set that can be used on the water competitively or recreational. Local training and sailing events will be held at Tempe Town Lake and Lake Pleasant. We sail Club FJs and a Martin 16. The ASU Sailing Club will be involved in community based regattas, as well as intercollegiate competitions in the Pacific Coast Collegiate Sailing Conference (PCCSC). However, please remember that no sailing experience is required.

Accessible Boats: The program utilizes small boats that are sailed by 1 to 4 people on Tempe Town Lake. Larger team boats are used at Lake Pleasant for racing and cruising. The program has boats that are accessible to accommodate almost any need. Some are specifically designed so that a person sits low inside the boat instead of leaning over the side. This allows even people with special needs to sail them alone with training.
Several aspects of the design include:

Ballasted centerboard or keel ensuring that the boat will not capsize.

Hull design, designated to promote stability and responsiveness.

Adaptive technology that can be controlled by any moving body part. This allows people with profound needs to sail their own boats.
