Frequently Asked Questions:
- How often do you sail and what do you sail?
The UVM Sailing Team practices in 18 FJs four times a week.
- How long is your season?
We sail from September until November, and then begin again as soon as the ice thaws, usually in late March. As a substitute for lost time in March, we have a spring training trip during Spring Break, and often train with Boston teams on Fridays.
- Does UVM offer scholarships for sailing?
The University of Vermont does not offer scholarships for sailing; in fact, under ICSA rules no sailor may receive financial support based on sailing ability.
- What is Burlington like?
Burlington is a great town - it is in the truest essence a college town, complete with four local colleges. The surrounding scenery is absolutely breathtaking, and one can pursue a plethora of outdoor sports. As soon as the season ends, our sailors often head to the mountains to enjoy the winter season. With such great surroundings and such fun people, the city of Burlington is really a great place to live.
