The UVM Sailing Club is home to UVM students from a range of schools, majors, backgrounds, and experience levels! Join us and our fleet of 18 collegiate FJ's at Lake Champlain Community Sailing Center on the waterfront to explore the beautiful waters of Lake Champlain.
As one of the most popular and competitive club teams at UVM, we attend an average of 4 to 6 regattas per weekend during sailing season. While most of these regattas specialize in fleet and team racing in double-handed dinghies, we also attend single-handed racing competitions. Additionally, we regularly participate in the esteemed New England Intercollegiate Sailing Association, or NEISA.
Spots in these events are selected on a competitive basis, but our team emphasizes an expansive schedule, which allows everyone to have a chance to participate. We also hold periodic fundraisers to augment the budget we receive from the Student Government Association.
The sailing team is funded as a club sport through the Student Government Association at UVM, and fundraises actively to augment its budget each season.
