Oak Hollow Sailing Club (OHSC) was organized in 1974, in cooperation with the City of High Point Parks and Recreation Department.  It was established and has continued as a non-profit public club with missions to "promote and enjoy the sport of sailing".  A significant part of the club's mission is to teach sailing  basics to new members who have never sailed, or who have had limited experience with the sport.

Oak Hollow Sailing Club holds scheduled activities from April until November each year.  Activities include monthly regattas, training and teaching days, social outings, camp and sail weekends, Community Sailing "Fun Days", holding classes for High Point University students each fall, participation in an annual inter-club regatta with Lake Townsend Yacht Club and an end-of-the-year banquet and awards ceremony in November.

You do NOT have to own a boat and you do NOT have to have sailing experience to join.  Many of the clubs current members joined in order to learn to sail.  Visit Oak Hollow Sailing Club's website at for more information.
