The racing program at Virginia has grown extensively in the past few years.  We compete at all skill levels, from lower-level local regattas to major intersectionals.  The majority of our racing is collegiate dinghy racing in Collegiate Flying Juniors and Collegiate 420s.  Our team has traveled as far as Bowdoin College, Maine, and Jacksonville, Florida for events. Virginia is a member of the Mid-Atlantic Intercollegiate Sailing Association (MAISA), one of the seven geographic conferences in the Inter-Collegiate Sailing Association (ICSA).

We currently practice once to twice a week at the Lake Anna Yacht Club, where we have a fleet of nine FJs and 2 safety boats. Our top racers take weekend trips to practice with other collegiate teams. During the fall of each year, Virginia hosts the Jefferson Cup, a MAISA fleet racing regatta.
