The Gryphon sailing team was founded in the 2017-2018 season. The team competes in CICSA, the Canadian Intercollegiate Sailing Association. This body oversees all regattas hosted by the sixteen universities across the country that it governs. While CICSA has schools all over the country competing, the university of Guelph is situated advantageously around seven schools so it can attend majority of regattas within about six hours driving. The points from every regatta attended during the school year are tallied at the end of the season and the school with the least amount of points takes home the win. The boats and equipment for those boats are supplied by the school hosting the regatta. Our boats have found a home at Belwood sailing club located in the Belwood Lake conservation area, a thirty-minute drive from the University. The sailing team is open to all levels of sailors whether it be dipping your toes in or coming to race, the team supports all levels and loves of sailing. This being said we have a system in place on who we send to regattas as we are only allowed to send four people to each one. The collegiate sailing regattas are held every weekend in the fall semester from the first weekend after the commencement of school to the last weekend in October.
