The Dalhousie Sailing Team (DST) is a student-run tier 1 club that provides sailors with the opportunity to learn how to sail and compete in Collegiate Sailing Circuits across North America. The

DST provides different levels of teams from recreational sailing to competitive varsity sailing for experienced sailors. DST begins sailing in September and the season continues until the first of November.

Team Commitment

The competitive sailing team practices and races in 420s, a 2-person dinghy. Practices will take place out of the Royal Nova Scotia Yacht Squadron in Halifax’s Northwest Arm. The Dalhousie Sailing Team is a member of the Canadian Inter-Collegiate Sailing Association (CICSA) and competes in regattas across eastern Canada.

Recreational sailing is available for Dalhousie students with or without sailing experience. If you have always wanted to sail or have just taken a break from the water and are itching to get back in a boat, the recreational program is a great option. The recreational team sails J-22s, a twenty-two foot boat with the capacity of 5-6 people including a qualified skipper. Rec sailing sessions will take place 2-3 times every Saturday starting in September until the end of October.

Interested in Joining?

We encourage anyone interested in learning how to sail, or looking to compete in sailing to visit our website.

Joining the DST is a great way to get out on the water, meet fellow students and sailors, and be a part of the Dalhousie Community.
