Last month, NC State's Sailing Team competed at the South Atlantic Intercollegiate Sailing Association's (SAISA) Conference Co-Ed Championship Regatta in Charleston SC, placing third. That was good enough to qualify for the Co-Ed National Championships, to take place June 7th and 8th at the Naval Academy in Annapolis MD. Sailing is a club sport at NC State, largely funded out of the athlete's pocketbooks and by charitable donations. The coach, Dana Magliola, is a volunteer. In intercollegiate sailing, club and varsity teams compete at the same level.
