The University of Iowa Sailing Club


The University of Iowa Sailing Club (UISC) is based on the south arm of Lake Macbride, in the University of Iowa''s Macbride Nature and Recreation Area, located twenty minutes north of Iowa City. Lake Macbride is a no-wake lake bordering on the Coralville Reservoir, making for an excellent learning environment and has one of the best facilities in the Midwest.

The club owns over 45 sailboats, including Flying Juniors (FJs), Lasers, Scows and a variety of dinghies. In addition, several windsurfers are available for use. Boats and sails are rotated periodically to maintain a sailable fleet.

The University of Iowa Recreation Services and the UISC maintain a dock, two boatsheds, and a large boathouse. The boathouse consists of a workshop area and a two- story social area. Available facilities include a refrigerator, kitchenette, and indoor restrooms. Keys to the boathouse are available to members rated Advanced Light Weather Helmsmen and above. Membership meetings are held in the Iowa Memorial Union (IMU) on the University of Iowa campus near downtown Iowa City. Meeting schedules and rooms can vary, so check club calendar for dates and times.
