Interested in sailing for UPenn?

The University of Pennsylvania Sailing Team is a competitive collegiate sailing program working hard to ascend the rankings. While we are a club team we have a full-time coach, varsity level commitment, schedule and training regime. 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, captains, and coaches 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 co-ed numerous times in the last 4 years (2013 – 2017). Most recently, our women’s team was ranked 16th on the Sailing World College Rankings as of Fall 2017. Our very own Lenox Butcher earned 7th at the Women’s Singlehanded National Championship in Fall of 2017.

We are among the top 10 teams in the mid-Atlantic conference, frequently placing even better in conference championship events. We operate on a varsity level schedule and commitment, while still maintaining opportunities for student leadership. We have a dedicated full-time coach, Isaac Clark, who started in Spring of 2018 to help lead our team to success.

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