The only sport on campus where you can compete and travel with members of the opposite sex. Must be adept at hiking out (hooking your feet under straps while hanging your butt over the edge of the boat) in all weather conditions and leaning in (to the bar) after the regattas. Typically a good sport for engineers who like the physics of how boats work and business majors who enjoy the sport's social side. College sailors will learn fun new vocabulary words like croakie, burgee, halyard and roll tack. Many students join college sailing teams for the cool swag.
I joined college sailing so I can travel to regattas, meet preppy guys and party at the yacht club.
