About the Team
The University of Connecticut Sailing Team is a student run club sport. Every weekend during the fall and spring the team competes in regattas throughout New England and is a member of NEISA.
Over the past couple of years the team has continued to improve and have many successes. The Huskies acquired Head Coach Peter Giuliano in the fall of 2011 and have since made team history by qualifying for the fall New England Championship, the Atlantic Coast Tournament, and the New England Dinghy Tournament. In addition the team took its first spring break trip to Miami for training where they practiced every day 8 to 5.
To complement the fastest growing team in New England, the University of Connecticut offers a highly touted academic program. As the #1 ranked public university in New England and 25th public institution in the nation, UConn offers prospective students a great environment to learn and grow. With an enviable student to faculty ratio of 17:1, an average class size of 30 students, and being a Research One institution, the university is an attractive choice to many of the region’s top scholars. UConn offers top quality programs such as engineering, business, kinesiology, nursing, and supplements those programs with over 260 study abroad opportunities in 65 countries. On top of that, UConn has just undergone a $2.3 billion dollar rebuilding project on all its campuses, which is more aid than any public university in the nation has received from its respective state. So when asking yourself, ‘Why UConn?’ the real question should be, ‘Why not?!’
