Help the Sailing Club at Florida Tech

Learn To Sail

Our Learn To Sail Program aims to make sailing accessible to all students. With the help of our conference and you, we are able to lower the barrier of entry to the sport of sailing. This program is important because it makes sailing accessible for everyone.The Sailing Club at Florida Tech is dedicated to teaching students how to sail. Learn to Sail Programs are held throughout the Fall and Spring semesters to introduce new sailors to the sport of sailing and promote sailing within the Florida Tech community. Every Saturday at noon, weather permitting, new students are invited to learn the basics of sailing and navigation while students completing the learn to sail program go out to sail. Lowering the barrier of entry to the sport and promoting diversity and inclusivity through Sailing at Florida Tech what the Learn to Sail Program is all about.
