Spring and Fall Sailing

Columbia Sailing School offers many opportunities to get involved with racing. We have Spring and Fall Sailing Programs for younger sailors as well as large high school and college sailing programs.


Throughout the Spring and Fall seasons, Columbia Sailing School hosts different high schools and middle schools in the greater Chicago area. Teams practice and compete out of our Columbia Yacht Club facility. Sailing is recognized as a school sport by many schools and 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.


To learn how to join an existing team or to start a new team at your school, contact us:

Spring Sailing runs from March 15 - May 21, 2022.
