With our fleet that includes (12) identical and lightly used C-420 sailboats, as well as over a dozen Lasers in very good condition and all 3 rig sizes available, SBJSA offers the perfect location and boats for a collegiate sailing team or recognized collegiate club that wishes to not only practice and improve their sailing skills, but also provides the resources and capability to host an intercollegiate regatta from mid-April to mid-October.
Currently and for the last few years, SBJSA is the proud host of the collegiate Sailing Club from the Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT). Approximately 30 RIT students utilize our facilities and boats for an 8-week practice season in fall (early Sept to early November) and spring (mid-March to mid-May) of the academic year. In addition to use of Lasers and 420s, we also make a Boston Whaler available for use as a coach and safety boat.
Due to our own staffing limitations that sometimes occur, we’re not always able to provide coaching services during the spring or fall, but we can often offer suggestions about area personnel that can provide coaching capability if we can’t. If your club or team needs coaching during the summer months, it’s likely we can provide that service.
Please contact SBJSA President Ed St. George at firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more about setting up a collegiate program for your school and the contract framework we utilize for that relationship, including cost.
