About Us / Recruits

Our team represents Princeton University in all ICSA (College Sailing) competitions and within our conference — MAISA (Mid-Atlantic Region). Recently, Princeton Sailing has undertaken the goal of ascending the ranks of College Sailing once again. Since 1929, our team has allowed hardworking students to escape onto the water a few times a week. At one time, Princeton was a national powerhouse in our sport, winning seven national championships in all, including four straight Women’s Championships from 1974 to 1977. Now, our goal is to build a program that can compete at that level once again, but we know it will be an arduous process.

Consisting of nearly 30 sailors, we thrive off our tight-knit community that strives for excellence, but makes sure to have plenty of fun while doing so. We are a program built on student leadership with an Officer Board consisting of ten sailors deliberating on most decisions off the water.

Our team currently has two main practice locations. Most days, we sail right on campus at Lake Carnegie, a tricky location with many shifts and gusts. For our larger practices, we commute to Raritan Yacht Club in Perth Amboy, NJ. This provides us with more wide open sailing and consistent breeze. Our fleet consists of 12 FJs and one 420.
