A brand new three story boathouse, the coolest boats in college sailing, the biggest and most diverse schedule of regattas, and the most storied program in the country is Tufts University Sailing.
Thank you for your interest in Tufts University and the Tufts Sailing Team. One of the most selective universities in the country, Tufts has excellent academic programs with internationally renowned professors. The Tufts Sailing team competes on an international level and its goal is to be number one!
Larks are thirteen and one-half foot dinghies with powerful sails, tall tapered carbon spars and deep narrow centerboards for superior upwind performance. With broad mainsails and a lightweight hull, Larks fly downwind. Our next fleet is being built locally and will be ready for early 2016.
Sailing is a two-season sport at Tufts with over 70 fall regattas and over 40 spring regattas. We enter up to eight regattas per weekend in a large variety of classes from dinghies to big boats, fleet racing, team racing and match racing. Each host school supplies the boats and with our location only five miles from Boston, we are in the heart of the nation’s busiest sailing conference.
Tufts greatest strength is the large number of talented and dedicated sailors who practice most afternoons each week filling up to all 24 Larks at practice. The emphasis is on experimenting, improving and having fun. We do mix in practices at other locations such as the Charles River, Boston Harbor and elsewhere.
