Interested in sailing at Penn?

The Penn Sailing Team is classified as a “competitive club sport” by the University, and falls under the jurisdiction of Penn Recreation and Club Sports. However, we do not like to be defined by the “club team” label because we feel that a “varsity mindset” is the way for us to excel at the national level. This attitude, along with the hard work of our sailors and officers, has vaulted Penn Sailing into the national spotlight recently – we are frequently mentioned in the Sailing World College Rankings, and have been ranked in the top 20 numerous times in the last 4 years (2013 – 16).


We are also among the top 10 teams in the mid-Atlantic conference, frequently placing even better in conference championship events. We operate as much like a varsity team as we can while still maintaining the “student-run” feel that really defines the program. We have the services of a part-time coach for 3 days of practice a week plus our weekend regattas.

We want the best and brightest to join our team and help take Penn Sailing to the next level – winning a national championship!
