The University of Miami funds about half of our budget through the Student Activities Fund (SAFAC) and the Federation of Club Sports. These funds help to pay for our practice/facility expenses and travel within our district, including any championships. Expenses for travel to our out of district inter-conference events is funded solely through private donations. Traveling to New England or the Mid-Atlantic to compete against the best teams in the country is expensive, but it is extremely important for the development of our program.

Our team has recently launched a fundraising campaign to expand our fleet of FJs. The team currently hosts 8 FJs at the U.S. Sailing Center for hosting regattas and all practices. We are currently looking to expand that fleet to 12-18 FJs to accommodate out growing team. This increase in fleet size will allow us to have more boats at every practice, host larger fleet racing and team racing regattas, and charter our fleet out to other teams during the offseason. This fleet expansion will solidify the University Of Miami’s place as a competitive team in college sailing with one of the most beautiful sailing venues in the world.

The Coed and Women’s sailing team are seperate teams in the eyes of the University of Miami. You can donate to whichever team you prefer as most of the money will be shared for any travel and the FJ fleet expansion.
