This past year the team qualified for the Gill Dinghy 2014 National Championships where they sailed against the top 35 teams in the nation at St. Mary's, College of Maryland! This is a huge accomplishment for the school as well as the team. We are looking forward to the beginning of the school year so we can do it again!
Where we sail
We launch out of the New College Waterfront, just south of the Ringling Mansion. We have a nice sandbar where we can sail out past our private mooring field to access Sarasota Bay.
We have a fun assortment of boats in our recreation sailing fleet here at New College Waterfront. A Hobie 18, Trac, Lasers, Sunfish, an O'Day, a Precision, Capri, 12- 420's , a Beetlecat, day sailor, Catalina's, and a few larger boats we keep on moorings just off our sandbar.
The Waterfront is a really cool place to go and hang out. Take out a kayak or sailboat, or just wade on the sand bar. Fishing is also very popular here at the New College Waterfront as Sarasota Bay is plentiful with sea life.
