A recap of our first “Try Varsity Sailing” clinic

This September, our team hosted our first annual “Try Varsity Sailing” high school clinic. We had an amazing time hosting 9 high school students! While there wasn’t much breeze, sailors were eager to learn about collegiate racing and to see what Queen’s Sailing is all about.

Sailors got to try out collegiate style sailing and team racing, meet with current QST athletes and alumni, and spent some time doing fitness in the Athletics and Rec Center. Huge thank you to Queen’s University Arts and Science for sponsoring the event, along with Varsity Properties Kingston and the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science - Queen’s University. Special thanks to Lindsey Fair for her hard work and dedication in making this clinic possible!
