The Cal Sailing Team is a student-run, non-profit, self-funded organization that operates a competitive year-round team. We practice out of the Treasure Island Sailing Center, right next to the Bay Bridge, three times a week as well as competing throughout both California and the nation against other club and Varsity teams. We are continually looking to expand our skills and continue the Corinthian spirit at Cal.
As we aspire to maintain a consistent competitive edge and make nationals, we need and value your support in helping us continue to build our sailing program. Since we receive minimal financial support from the university, we rely on your kind donations to pay regatta entrance fees, cover travel costs, maintain our fleet, and fund various other costs crucial to keeping our team sailing each year.
This year, we are continuing our fundraising for a new fleet of secondhand boats to replace our 19-year-old fleet! This would provide us much better practice conditions, which would allow our team to practice on boats that are equal with out competitors and also allow the Cal Sailing Team to host larger regattas such as Nationals!
Please consider making a gift today and support us in our fundraising efforts. We greatly appreciate your generosity and thank you for helping us become the best team we can be! Go bears!
