Programs | Sailing
The Stony Brook School offers students many opportunities to develop both recreational and competitive sailing skills. Experienced sailors seeking high levels of interscholastic and regatta competition may compete on the varsity level sail team during thefall and spring athletic seasons. Practicing after school in Port Jefferson Harbor, the fleet includes: Laser, Club Collegiate 420, Widgeon, Interclub, O’Day 17, Sailing Dinghy, Raven, Bristol 22, Alberg 30, and Morgan 30. All students have the opportunity to sail on both historic and modern famous ships, such as the H.M.S. ROSE, the world’s largest operating wooden ship, and America’s Cup 12-meter champions, such as the WEATHERLY and AMERICAN EAGLE.
Yacht Racing and Cruising Team
The yacht team has been entering regattas along the eastern seaboard since 1990 on the SEA WIND, a seaworthy Alberg 30 auxiliary sloop. This graceful craft with classic lines has full electronic instrumentation and space to sleep six during overnight trips. Varsity letters are awarded to those students that campaign SEA WIND in a specific number of weekend regattas. A range of American Sailing Association Certification courses are available to SEA WIND crew members.
Dinghy Sail Team
The dinghy sail team competes in double-handed 420 and single-handed Laser one-design craft. Fall competition includes district and open regattas. In the spring, dual and quad-meet team racing is added to the district and national elimination regattas. The dinghy sail team also campaigns a 24-foot Raven class sloop in local class regattas.
Schedules are distributed
