Are You Considering Attending Queen’s University?

We are always looking to recruit new racers!

New sailors: If you are considering Queen’s for sailing then here’s the plan:

  1. First get yourself accepted to Queen’s University. You’ll need excellent marks because Queen’s is, above all, a great school.

  2. Meanwhile get in peak shape, and sail hard all summer. Come to Kingston in late August, race at CORK, then be ready for tryouts to sail for four years with the top collegiate sailing team in Canada.

Visit our Propects Page for more information and FAQ.

Let us know you’re coming! Email qsailing@queensu.ca and we will pair you with an existing team member to help get you set-up and oriented so you’re ready to start sailing with us in September 2017.

Are You Currently a Queen’s Student?

Joining Queen’s Sailing is easy! Write to qsailing@queensu.ca and we will get you involved.

Take note: Extensive experience is often not required to sail collegiate dinghies. In fact, over the years many of the best crews were new to sailing and when paired with an experienced skipper, a dedicated crew can learn a lot in one semester.

That’s part of what makes collegiate sailing so great - it brings high level athletes and keen beginners together on an even playing field.
