Who We Are

The Cal Poly Sailing team is a competitive Club Sport team at Cal Poly. The team competes in regattas sanctioned by the Inter-Collegiate Sailing Association of North America, specifically the Pacific Coast Collegiate Sailing Conference. We race against schools from up and down the West Coast, and practice at Morro Bay Yacht Club.

Our Story

The sailing team is one of the oldest club sports teams at California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo. Founded in the 1960's, the team has always been a student run organization. As a club team, we primarily exist through fundraising and committed members. Morro Bay Yacht Club has been extremely supportive throughout our existence. They provide facilities for practice, regattas, and storage as well as logistical advice. Within the last several years, we've partnered with Morro Bay Yacht Club to make an unprecedented upgrade to our fleet including 10 new FJ's and new sails! Then in April of 2018, we placed 3rd and 4th in Pacific Coast Conference Championships for coed and team racing in Oahu, Hawaii. For the first time in the team's 50 year history, we qualified for and competed in the College Sailing National Championships in Norfolk, Virginia!

Looking forward, we're looking into coaching, competing in more out of area events, getting into match racing, and of course, making it back to nationals.
