The Fall 2010-Spring 2011 Season was the 45th Anniversary of the formation of the UCI Sailing Team. In those 45 years the team has garnered 7 National Championships, 50 All American honors, 5 ICSA Dinghy National low point winners and numerous Conference Championships.
However a lot has changed in 25 years. The team has gone from a full fledged varsity program with a full time coach and athletic department perks to a viable student run racing program. Less than three months after the announcement that the program was dropped by the school the team qualified for the ICSA Sloop National Championships in New London, CT.
To help solidify the sailing team’s future and ensure that they remain a highly competitive team we need your help. They are currently in desperate need of new equipment and travel funds. While the ultimate goal is an endowment to support the program the immediate need is $45,000+ to replace their fleet of boats, repair the trailers and acquire new sails.
