CIYC is now represented in intercollegiate sailing


CIYC Olympic Team sailor and Racing Coach Leopold Brandl has discovered a new type of racing for himself – college sailing. We all know Leo cannot pass on an opportunity to race! Whether it’s Olympic sailing, high-performance off-shore racing, or just the occasional Wednesday night regatta – he is always on the line. So, he decided this spring to start competing on the Columbia University Sailing Team and apply his years of dinghy experience in a new discipline! Finishing his first three events all in podium positions and leading the team to qualify for the America Trophy, Leo had a good start into the scene and plans to continue competing in the fall.

The CIYC Junior Sailing program hopes to build the next generation of racers who will eventually also compete on the intercollegiate level. To learn more about our program click here.
