Last year, Hatteras Community Sailing and Colington Yacht Club leadership worked together to spearhead the first-ever High School Sailing effort for the Outer Banks. Kids from First Flight and Cape Hatteras participated, learned from scratch, and competed against schools from Raleigh, Wilmington, Lake Norman, Beaufort, NC, Charleston, Beaufort, SC, Hampton, and New Bern.
This year, the organizers will be posting a date for interest meetings at all three school districts. Plus, there is a cooperative effort between Colington, Hatteras, and Manteo sailing programs to make this available to as many kids as possible with the 5 – 8 boats available.
Sailing is a lifelong adventure that can take you places you never imagined, (including fun and lucrative work right back home to the Outer Banks.) If you are interested in participating in the 2024 Spring Interscholastic Sailing Season, please click here to complete the Interest Form, and you will be contacted with more information about how the program works.
