    Feel the sun blazing down your neck? Check. Feel the splash of water streaking down your body? Check. Feel the winds flowing through your hair? Check.

    Sounds like a standard trip to the beach, but we are not that sort of CCA. We strive for excellence, both on and off the water. A mainstay in RI’s gold medal hauls year on year, we strive to build on our successes created by our seniors, going further, pushing harder, and ultimately, sailing faster. As defending champions for the 8th year running, we constantly aim for progress every year, building on our strengths and working on our weaknesses.

    At the end of the day, we really enjoy what we do. While most students would sleep in on beautiful Saturday mornings, we would rather be baking in the sun and being splashed by saltwater. While the beach may seem like a place for cycling and picnics, we see it as our home. A place where memories are being born, and friendships are being made.
