The NC State sailing team is gearing up for the Bucc Racing season.

The club racing program at NC state is a great program that introduces students to sailing opportunities in a variety of formats.  The program has everything from beginner sailors to inter-collegiate racers.

Now they have Buccaneers!

Due to a partnership between members of the sailing program at NC State, and regional fleets in both North Carolina and Maryland the team now has two active sailing Buccaneers.   They participate in weekend club series at Jordan Lake near Raleigh, NC.  They also use the boats to introduce new sailors to the sport and the class.

Judging by the faces on these students…they’re enjoying the ride!
