Sailing Team

Great Lakes Maritime Academy's sailing team competes in regattas across the nation. As a member of the Inter-Collegiate Sailing Association, our team welcomes the tough competition and travel that is part of being a sailing team member. The Academy's training waters are outside the maritime harbor in West Grand Traverse Bay. We are looking for cadets who are up for a challenge. From racing in small boat regattas, to competing aboard larger vessels, our crew is always ready to get their feet wet.

Requirements to Compete

You must be a maritime cadet in good standing and attending the Academy full-time to join the sail team. There is no distinction between the Deck and Engineering programs — all true competitors are equal. To travel and compete, you must be registered with the ICSA and not have sailed competitively for more than five years.
