Spring and Fall Sailing

Columbia Sailing School offers many opportunities to get involved with sailing. We have Spring and Fall Sailing Programs for younger sailors and a large high school program.


Throughout the Spring and Fall seasons, Columbia Sailing School hosts different high schools and middle schools in the greater Chicago area. The teams practice and compete out of our facilities at Columbia Yacht Club. Many schools recognise Sailing as a school sport and it is growing in popularity. The Midwest Interscholastic Sailing Association (MISSA) currently has the largest and fastest-growing group of high school sailors in the United States.
