St George's School Athletics - Sailing

Fall Sailing

The St. George's School Sailing program is one of the oldest High School Sailing programs in the country. The team's home waters are in Newport, RI and the team operates out of Sail Newport in the Fall and Ida Lewis in the Spring.
St. George's School owns a fleet of eighteen z420s, six FJs, and six club 420s. For coaching there are four whalers and an inflatable.

About the Program

The Fall season is a new addition to the SG Sailing Program and is limited to around twenty four sailors, whereas the Spring Program may have upwards of forty sailors. With four or five coach boats on the water each day, the ratio of coaches to sailors ensures that we can offer a great deal of individualized on-the-water coaching.
The Fall program focuses on honing the skills of both returning and new sailors with an emphasis on boathandling and fleet racing.
