The purpose of the sailing club is to provide frequent sailing opportunities at Lake Shawnee to midshipmen of the KU NROTC program. It is open to all classes and provides an opportunity to build comradery among battalion members. Members learn basic techniques for turning and directing the boats, practice attaching and removing sails, and learn how to react during a capsize or “man overboard” situation. In past years, the club scheduled sailing dates exclusively in the fall, but additional events are being planned for the spring. Events are scheduled once or twice each month. Once students become more comfortable and skilled while sailing, they can engage in fun activities such as racing with other members and learning more difficult techniques. All members of the program are encouraged to join, regardless of their desired community or ability levels.
