We are happy to announce the 2018 fall Brother Rice Marian Sailing (BRMSailing) to our students. Sailing is a fast growing, high school sport that is recognized throughout the country. There are already 123 teams in the Midwest Inter-Scholastic Sailing Association (MISSA). Michigan is host to 37 schools including, Cranbrook/Kingswood, Detroit Country Day School, Mercy, Bloomfield Hills, West Bloomfield and Troy High Schools in our immediate area. Sailing builds character, physical/mental strength, personal/social responsibility, critical thinking, and camaraderie.
Students will be trained tactically and educated to understand the mechanics of rigging and caring for their vessel. Experience is not a criterion. It is a fall and spring sport. A student can choose to participate in either option or both. Each practice involves constant on-water supervision by a trained instructor. Safety is our number one priority. Boats typically sailed are c420’s, consisting of a two-man team. Sailing is a regulated sport through MISSA (missa.hssailing.org). Throughout the season, the students will practice and train, race against schools in the area, and sail in specific sanctioned regattas.
