The University of St. Thomas Sailing Team has a complicated past, before 2021 the team last existed in 2015.
In 2021 the team was re established by Rachel Bartel along with other invested and hopeful students.
Fall 2021 was the teams first competitive season back on the water in about a decade.
Since re-instatement as a club, we have traveled to four states and competed in a number of regattas;
we are currently ranked 73rd out of 158 teams in the conference.
