High School Sailing Team
Learn to sail, race and gain the skills to compete at local, regional or even national level regattas. SUNY Maritime College provides everything needed to participate including sailboats (420s, FJs and Keelboats), coaches, safety boats, and life jackets at one of the best waterfront facilities in the country. High School Sailing is co-ed and open to both individuals and teams. Sailors from multiple schools will be combined based on skill level, have an opportunity to sail with different partners, and may attend regattas as part of a composite team.
WHAT TO EXPECT: High School Sailing is run like an after-school sport. Monday and Friday practices are run by coaches and waterfront staff and consist of briefings, drills, games and racing on the water. Primarily, practice is sailed in dinghies (420s and FJs) and is complemented by keelboats (J105, J44, Figaro, IC24s) and catamarans (Hobie Waves.) Sailors of all abilities come from different schools to practice together. With a low coach-to-sailor ratio, all participants will develop their skills and take their sailing to a higher level.
SKILL LEVEL: All skill levels
AGES: 9th-12th grades
PACKING LIST: The required and recommended gear list is available here.
DIRECTIONS: High School Sailing meets in the East Bay of McMurray Hall (directions).
