Relocating? Life in Lake Norman

Lake Norman Sailing and Rowing Center Now Open to All!

Sailing On Lake Norman


Lake Norman is an incredible place to live, particularly if you own a waterfront home or a boat.  But, what if you want to go sailing or rowing on Lake Norman and you don’t have a boat?  Thanks to the generosity and passion of some local sailors and rowers,  North Carolina Community Sailing and Rowing,  a 501(c) (3) non-profit organization working in partnership with Mecklenburg County and Cornelius Parks & Rec Departments, recently opened to the public offering sailing and rowing programs on Lake Norman for all ages and abilities.

What is great about this new Lake Norman sailing and rowing program is that the boats and equipment are provided by the center thanks to the generous donations of many Lake Norman area residents and businesses.  All one needs to do is sign-up, pay a very reasonable fee for a season pass and you are on your way to learning how to sail and/or row.  The center is conveniently located on Lake Norman at Blythe Landing in Cornelius.

Fall Lake Norman sailing and rowing programs are underway but it is not too late to join!

Lake Norman Rowing Day 1 juniors

A friend of mine and I have started the rowing classes which are held on Saturday mornings.  There are three classes depending on your age and experience: Masters,  Adult Novice and Juniors.  This photo was taken of  the juniors out on the first day.  The boats we are using hold 8 rowers but they also have sculls for different sizes.  Learning the technical skills to row successfully as an 8-person team is challenging but really really fun!

Because NC Community Sailing and Rowing is a fledgling non-profit they are looking for financial donations as well as more boats and equipment so that they can offer a full schedule of classes on Lake Norman in the Spring.
