Queen’s is an amazing University. It is also home to Canada’s best and most consistent sailing team. Many sailors from across the country choose Queen’s for the high calibre of racing, strong sailing history in Kingston, and the Kingston Yacht Club’s close proximity to campus. We have a large fleet of twenty (20) Club 420s and a large varsity team of over 50 members. We also provide coaching for the Queen’s Rec Sail Club, for sailors and non-sailors alike to get out on the water for fun on weekends.
We practice in double-handed Club 420 dinghies and single-handed in Laser and Laser Radial classes.
YES! We have a deal with the Kingston Yacht Club, and the process is easy.
The team trains from the beginning of September through until the end of October, weather permitting. As long as the lake isn’t ice, we’re sailing!
Dinghy practice times: Tuesday-Friday, 7-10am Monday-Thursday, 3-6pm
You must attend a minimum of two (2) practices per week. Athletes looking to be selected for qualifying and championship regattas must consistently attend a minimum of four (4) practices per week.
We are a highly competitive varsity team, and the best collegiate sailing team in Canada. We dominate the Canadian Collegiate Sailing scene (CICSA), and compete quite competitively in the US (MAISA and ICSA). Sailors on the team vary in level of commitment, with a minimum practice attendance of two (2) practices/week.
That being said, we are introducing a “practice squad” in the 2018 season. We are increasing our team size to allow for more boats on the water at each practice, so come try out!
If you’re interested in trying out for the team, please email Adrienne Gaudreault and Zac Baum, club co-presidents, at email@example.com with your intention of trying out in the fall.
