Moorestown Sailing Team
We are very excited to announce the new formation of the Moorestown Sailing Team (co-ed), that began Fall 2017 sailing season. There are two season, Fall and Spring.
It is not required that you have sailing experience, that is what Tuesday and Thursday practice is for!
MST is not an official Moorestown High School activity, however we are an associated sport of the High School to provide training and competition in the sport of sailing. Any Moorestown High School Student, or Fall new MHS student, is eligible to join!
Our Racing Facility Sponsor is the Riverton Yacht Club (RYC)
just 5 miles down the street on the Delaware River. Founded in 1865, Riverton Yacht Club is one of the oldest in America. For 150 years, RACING has continued at the club with today's members racing multiple times a week, skippered by sailing coaches & professors from the elite Universities in NJ and PA.
Practice & Regattas:
Tuesdays and Thursdays are practice at RYC from 4:00-6:30 pm.
Some Saturdays or Sundays are the NJISSA Regattas if you want to compete (not required and we can be selective).
We also can race almost every Wednesday in Toms River NJ against 10-15 NJ High Schools. We leave school 15 mins early and car pool 45 mins east to Toms River and all schools use Toms River sailboats, so it's show up and race in the regattas.
It is not required that you have sailing experience, that is what Tuesday and Thursday practice is for! However, we can recommend “Learn to Sail” and if you have some experience “Learn to Race” programs at Riverton Yacht Club and Cooper River Yacht Club.
