Our New Learn to Sail Program!

     Recently, our team has taken on the initiative to start a new program that's purpose is to teach students how to sail! Once a week, we take our newbie sailors to the lake with some more experienced race team sailors in order to show them the ins and outs of what it's like to race sailboats. Our Learn to Sail program consists of chalk talks, where we go over the basics of sailing through short weekly classes, and hands-on practices on the lake. 

     This program is open to all students, no matter the skill level. It is a great way to get involved on the team and meet some of our members. Our program has been a lot of fun so far and we are so excited to continue doing it!

     We encourage prospective students and current Virginia students that are interested in Learn to Sail to contact Commodore Kieran McMahon (kkm2sg@virginia.edu) for more information.
