Sailing Club at ERAU

College Sailing Team and Learn to Sail Program


About Us

Home of the Sailing Club at ERAU and the ERAU Sailing Team of the Daytona Beach campus. The club is an affiliate organization of the Halifax Sailing Association which is where we sail out of. We are also apart of the South Atlantic district of the Inter-Collegiate Sailing Association.  Club membership is open to anyone. Use of the club boats is available at anytime as long as membership dues are up to date and the sailor has completed an initial checkout. Learn-to-sail and checkout sessions will occur on Sunday afternoons or by appointment with a club member. The sailing team practices twice a week and competes on the weekends. We travel all over the South to compete in our district.  Those interested in any off-shore races the club adviser has some contacts with the HRYC and SYC and if you want to help crew during one of the races let him know. We currently have a two 420's, two FJ's, and a tricked out Laser 2.  Wanna learn more? Come to a meeting.
