Help the UConn Sailing Team buy new boats!

UConn Sailing Team

The sailing team is composed of hardworking, dedicated individuals. Many of our sailors devote every weekend throughout the semester to travel to regattas and represent UConn. Our sailors have the mindset, but not the equipment necessary to be competitive within the college sailing world.

Acquiring new boats is an ongoing goal of any sailing team. Teams that we sail against within our conference, such as Salve Regina, the University of Vermont, and Yale, have new boats with the latest equipment from within the last two or three years, while our boats are from the year 2000. In order to stay competitive within NEISA, we hope to buy a fleet of new FJs within the next year and a half and a coach boat as well. We plan for any money raised from Ignite to go towards the expenses of this new equipment.
