OCC has an intercollegiate sailing team that sails against the top four-year schools in the nation.
The college is committed to providing a first class sailing experience and training ground for our future skippers and crew members in Ocean County.
OCC has acquired 18 new 420s from generous donations from the surrounding community. They have a intercollegiate team that competes in the Middle Atlantic Intercollegiate Sailing Association.
They host both a spring and fall regatta in which eighteen schools compete and sail in regattas every weekend in the fall and six weekends in late spring.
In April of 2010 the OCC sailing team qualified and sailed in the MAISA Championship regatta and came in first in three regattas.
They plan to develop clubhouse facilities, acquire floating docks and develop a school of sailing and seamanship in the Mill Creek Park on the Toms River.
The OCC sailing club open to all full time OCC students. NO experience is necessary to join!
