Varsity Sailing

Culver Sailing is one of the best supported and equipped high school sailing programs in the country. The program supports advanced racers as well as novice sailors who are beginning to sail in high school. All sailing at Culver is entirely co-ed, with girls and boys having an opportunity to learn and compete on an equal basis. The fall Culver Varsity racing team is a member of the Midwest Interscholastic Sailing Association (MISSA) and competes on a regional basis during the fall season. The Team has competed nationally in the Interscholastic Sailing Association (ISSA) regattas in New Orleans and the U.S. Coast Guard Academy. In the spring, the Learn-to-Sail class is on the water for a month learning the basics of sailing. Most students will earn a skipper card, allowing them to check out boats on their own during recreational sailing periods. Sailors that earn a skipper card and a coach recommendation are eligible to join the Varsity team the following fall.

Sailing facilities include the lakefront Naval Building (with a ventilated sail locker, staff offices, and class and conference rooms), winter storage barns, and over a mile of frontage on beautiful Lake Maxinkuckee. Culver's fall and spring sailing fleet includes 420s, Lasers, ST-1’s, and Capri 22 keel boats, Boston Whaler safety boats, and pontoon committee/observation boats. The program is supported by a U.S. Sailing trained coaching staff and a professional boat crew. Culver’s sailing program offers extraordinary opportunities for learning, competition, and fun on the water.
