Let’s go


Join Us

Welcome to GT Sailing

Whether you are brand-new to sailing or a lifelong sailor, the Georgia Tech Sailing Club welcomes you to join us.
The purpose of this club is to encourage sailing, teach sailing and promote racing to all members of the Georgia Tech community.


Since launching in 1961, our club has introduced sailing to hundreds of students and faculty. Learning about sailing is at the heart of what our club was founded to do.


The GT Sailing club is full of opportunities to sail competitively. We compete in the Inter-collegiate Sailing Association (ISCA) as well as individually hosted regattas.


From week long sailing trips to quick outings in the afternoon, the GT Sailing club gives students and faculty the opportunity to experience the joy of sailing.


Many of the regattas that members of the GT Sailing club compete in are hosted outside of Atlanta, giving competitors the opportunity to travel across the country.
