Our History And Vision

About Us

We are a club team at Villanova University and sail in MAISA, the Mid-Atlantic division of the Inter-Collegiate Sailing Association (ICSA).  During both the Fall and Spring seasons we compete against Varsity and Club teams from around the country. 

From highly competitive high school sailing to years of summer junior programs, we are comprised of student-sailors with varied levels of racing experience.  However, we all share common goals: to improve our racing skills and succeed.


The Villanova Sailing Team originated in the 1970s, taking a hiatus in the early 1990s, but coming back to campus in 2004.  Since then, our team has been working hard to sustain itself and grow into a competitive team, both at the regional and national levels.
