Team information:
We are a group of motivated and diverse sailors looking to continue pushing ourselves competitively, while also encouraging the love of the sport. Our full roster includes eighty sailors, split evenly between men and women. Some sailors have never sailed before college, while others raced intensely throughout high school. This makes us a teaching team, but with competitive goals. Our coach must be able to teach all ability levels. We practice four days a week throughout the collegiate fall and spring sailing seasons, and attend regattas nearly every weekend during the fall and spring.

Northwestern University is located in Evanston, IL, fifteen miles from downtown Chicago. We practice out of the Northwestern University Sailing Center. The Sailing Center has eighteen 420s, nine Lasers, and three safety boats. The team also owns six FJs. We launch directly off Northwestern’s South Beach to sail on Lake Michigan.

- US Sailing Level 1 Certification (Level 2 preferred)
- Substantial Dinghy Racing Experience
