Established in October 2011, Sacred Heart Club Sailing is an up and coming collegiate sailing team that is a member of NEISA (New England Inter-Collegiate Sailing Association). As a Club Sport, we are a student run team with amazing guidance from Head Coach, David H. White, founder of Sail Black Rock. Sail Black Rock is a composition of Sacred Heart University and Fairfield University sailing schools. Our team consists of beginners, who are eager to become avid sailors, as well as seasoned racers that compete on the intercollegiate level.
Our sailing practices take place at Captain's Cove Seaport in Bridgeport, CT about 10-15 minutes away from campus. To get to practice we carpool, meeting outside the main academic building by public safety. From a commitment standpoint we require all sailors to attend at least two practices per week. Prctices are held Tuesday-Friday from 3:15pm- 6:30pm. Our fleet consists of 14 FJs, 3 Lasers, 1 Yngliing, and 1 Hobie 16 Catamaran
As a member of NEISA we compete in regattas with schools including Yale, Brown, Harvard, MIT, Providence College, BC, & BU along with several other schools in New England. While we are a club sport our competition consists of both club and varsity teams.
