As the fall semester is rapidly approaching, I wanted to give everyone some updates about the club.
Our first club practice of the season is going to be on August 28th from 5-8 pm. We will then have practices on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 5-8 pm, weather permitting, until the end of the season. If these times do not work for you, please contact an eboard member, and we will do our best to accommodate you.
Waivers & Dues:
All members are required to fill out a liability waiver before their first sail this year. Dues are $50 for the year and are due after your first sail.
This year we will be using Discord as our primary tool for club communication. Invitation links can be found on our club’s involvement link page and under the clubs section of the MTU Discord hub.
We will be having a general club meeting on September 12th in Fisher Hall at 5 pm. Feel free to bring your friends and any questions that you have.
Just a quick club update. We have a new eboard for the 2023 season.

Each year, the top colleges in each conference are ranked based on coaches votes. This past Fall, Michigan Tech’s sailing team placed in the top ten for coed teams in the MCSA conference. Congratulations to all of the sailors who raced this season. The link for the rankings is provided below.
School is back in session and that means we are back on the Portage! If you’re interested in joining the race team or if you would like to learn how to sail so you can join us in the fun we have at regattas, contact our Race Captain, Taylor Hover at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Hope you had a fantastic summer. It is just about time for classes to start and for us to begin the sailing season.
I would like to invite our returning sailors and anyone interested in joining the club to our recruitment barbecue this Sunday at the East Houghton Waterfront Park from 1-5 pm. In the case of inclement weather the event will be rescheduled for Tuesday from 5-7 pm.
The team will be providing Hot dogs, veggie dogs and buns.
Rides will be provided from the Wadsworth Hall main entrance.
Hope to see you there!
