Support for the Friends of Sailing has helped build Dartmouth's team into a nationally-ranked program. Friends funding provides the bedrock for our two annual training trips, on which students have almost no out-of-pocket costs. These training trips provide critical on the water time, and help offset the challenge our northern climate presents as we prepare for championship season in April and May. Friends support also helps provide essential equipment and assistant coaching compensation.

"Friends support allows us to reduce out-of-pocket expenses for our team members by providing drysuits and meals when we travel.  Additionally, without the support of Dartmouth Sailing Alumni and Friends, our two annual training trips would not be possible."

Justin Assad, Head Coach of Sailing
