Support the University of St. Thomas Sailing Team!

This campaign ended on May 01, 2023, but you can still make a gift to University of St. Thomas by clicking here!

The St. Thomas sailing team is a co-ed, student led organization that aims to cater to students with all levels of sailing experiences. The costs associated with sailing can be a deterrent for many potential members, so our goal for this fundraiser is to have the ability to alleviate some of those costs. Our plan is to be able to cover a majority of registration and travel costs for our members, thus making general participation and travel much more feasible. We also are hoping to use these funds to purchase more team gear (dry suits, which are necessities when water temp gets low) to loan to members who do not have all of the needed gear. Funding these projects is going to allow us to expand our current participation and also put this club in a place where they can continue to be successful for years to come. 

We are so appreciative of your support of our team and would love for you to stay updated and connected with our future endeavors. Your continued support of club sailing makes our dreams of becoming a thriving and competitive team possible. Our website is, and is filled with information about our regattas, club members, blog, and a photo gallery. We also have an Instagram (@ustsailing), and Facebook (UST Sailing Team).

A Message from Greg Bittle '25

Hi, my name is Greg Bittle and I am the current Vice President of the St. Thomas sailing team. This crowdfunding campaign is extremely beneficial for our team. As a club, we cover almost all of our members' registration costs; something that we are very proud to do. This commitment to our members ultimately drains a large portion of the funding that we receive from St. Thomas. This crowdfunder will help to greatly alleviate many of the losses we take from covering registration and allow for more off-the-water activities. I'm incredibly proud of what this team has accomplished so far, and this crowdfunder will help us continue to bring the sport of sailing to St. Thomas.
