Cal Maritime Represents the USA in the
Student Yachting World Cup
Make a Gift
California Maritime Academy’s sailing team is preparing to represent the United States in the Student Yachting World Cup (SYWoC) in France this fall. Private support is needed to cover the costs of the entry fee, boat charter, travel, housing, coaching, uniforms, and other expenses for regattas leading up to the main event in France.
The Keelhaulers earned the right to represent the U.S. by winning the 2013 Kennedy Cup. The Kennedy Cup Regatta at the U.S. Naval Academy is the College Big Boat National Championship.
The Sailing Program spans the entire history of the Academy. This is the second time Cal Maritime has represented the United States at the SYWoC, finishing fifth in 2010. No U.S. team has ever won.
The Student Yachting World Cup has been organized every year since 1979 by students from the Ecole Polytechnique, and it was originally known as the “Course de l’Europe.” Gradually, it began to incorporate competitors from other continents. In 1992, the International Yachting Race Union gave it the current name, and it is recognized as the World Cup by the International Sailing Federation (ISAF).
You can be a part of the team by making a donation to support Cal Maritime as they represent the United States.
