A student led, student run club sport at Northwestern. Founded in the early 1950's, NUST is one of the original members of the Midwest Collegiate Sailing Association, in which we still compete almost every weekend when in season. We also compete on a national level at intersectional regattas several times per year. Our most notable recent achievements include sending our women's team to Nationals in spring 2016 and winning the MCSA Conference Championships in fall 2016! Our practice and home regattas take place right on campus at the NU Sailing Center, which is no more than a 10 minute walk from anywhere on campus. We're lucky sail on Lake Michigan, which provides us with conditions ranging from cold heavy NE breeze with 5-ft waves to warm and shifty SW breeze with flat water. NUSC was rebuilt in 2014, and now has locker rooms, bathrooms, and showers. There truly is no better facility for college sailing! The team has access to their fleet of 18 420's, 6 brand new FJ's, and 3 coach boats.
