Sail Spring 2014!
If anyone is interested in joining the UT Sailing Team we changed our room to Parlin 204. We are still meeting at the same time, Mondays at 8, for spring 2014. If you have never practiced with us, we will tell you where we compete and give a short debrief about practices. We really hope to see you at a meeting! If you cant find an answer to your question on the site, feel free to contact any of our officers!
Sugar Bowl Regatta
UTST's trip to NOLA during winter break was a success! Tulane hosted and depsite the bad weather, we placed 7th out of 12 schools. Besides having fun on the water, Bourbon during NYE was also a great time. Everyone enjoyed themselves and took away great memories and stories!
Texas Outdoorsmen/Texas Sailing SUP/Kayaking!
Sunday October 7th, we will be going on a joint water adventure with Texas Outdoorsman! We will be Stand-up paddleboarding and kayaking on Sunday after the Almuni Regatta. $15 per person, more info will follow.
Regatta Report 1/27/14
We hosted this past Saturday's regatta at AYC. Only four teams showed up of the eight that were supposed to race. Unfortunately, the wind was shifty and non-existant at an average of 5 knots. We postponed and re-did the course multiple times. We placed last but still had a good time! The sun was out and tempatures rose to the 50's even though UT was closed Friday due to ice.
The University of Texas Sailing Team is a nationally competitive under-grad club sport. Our goal is to expand the love and knowledge of competitive sailing throughout the University community and our conference at large. Some team members come in with a vast knowledge base of experience, while some members join the team with little or no experience and with determination and devotion they become highly competitive sailors.

Weekly meetings are generally held Mondays in Parlin 204 at 8:00. Practice is held twice a week on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
