URI is the perfect place for experienced sailors and those who want to learn.

The Sailing Center, located on Salt Pond Road in Wakefield, approximately 20 minutes from the University, is home to both the Sailing Club and the URI Sailing Team. Students can learn to sail for academic credit and during the summer we offer a range of programs for all ages. Sailboats, paddle boards, and kayaks are available for URI student and community use.
