Thank you very much for your donation!
Although the Sailing Team continually ranks at or near the top of the sailing rankings year in and year out, the Team operates on one of the smallest budgets compared to its peers. We are proud of our fiscal efficiency, but it still requires a certain level of funds. Think of the costs involved in fielding a strong sailing team and youâ€™ll realize how every bit of support helps. There are facilities costs, and you can imagine the cost associated with running an adequate training facility along the water. There are transportation costs – since the USC Main Campus is not adjacent to the water, team members must be transported to the sailing facility each practice day; additionally, there is travel up and down the West Coast, trailering boats to regattas, or flying across country to compete in national level events. And there are the costs of the fleet of racing boats themselves, sails, upkeep, coaching and support, and the list goes on. Every bit of support the Varsity Sailing Team receives from donors like you is critical to the teamâ€™s existence and success, so please consider giving today.
