Sailing

The URI Sailing Center is home to both the URI Sailing Club and the URI Sailing Team. Located on Salt Pond Road in Wakefield, approximately 20 minutes from the University, the Center boasts a fleet of 60 boats, both sail and power. Twelve foot Tech dinghies and 14 foot Flying Junior sloops are used for both recreational and instructional sailing. In addition, advanced sailors train aboard 30 foot Etchells 22, two J-24’s, 420 class sloops and lasers. A separate fleet of 18 matched Flying Juniors is maintained for use by the URI Sailing Team.

The Robert P. Arrigan Sailing Pavilion, completed in 1992, contains office and meeting space, bathrooms and shower facilities, a small sail repair loft and a full service workshop. All recreational and instructional sailing programs as well as the URI Sailing Team practices and regattas are held at the center.
