RMC Sailing Team

The RMC Competitive Sailing Team is comprised of 20 Naval and Officer Cadets who compete in the vibrant collegiate sailing scene in Canada. As a founding member of the Canadian Intercollegiate Sailing Association(CICSA) the sail team has strived to develop collegiate sailing within Canada. The team is one of RMCC’s competitive clubs and one of the oldest at RMC. The team is made possible thanks to the gracious support of the RMC Foundation and the RMC Yacht Club.

The sail team has represented not only RMC but Canadian Armed Forces sailors and Canada as a whole abroad. From hosting and competing in Canadian Collegiate National Regattas to fulfilling the role of Team Canada at the Annual Trofeo Accademia Navale in Livorno, Italy, the RMC sail team has proved itself to be a robust competitor in national and international sailing.

The RMC sail team is coached by veteran sailor and College Chief, Chief Petty Officer First Class Keith Davidson who has significant offshore keelboat racing experience. The sail team is presently captained by 3rd year Naval Cadet Alek Robaczewski who is an experienced club 420 dinghy sailor. The team is further divided by specialty with some members focusing on the physically demanding club 420 dinghy which is used not only on the collegiate circuits but around the world. While a smaller number of sailors focus on keelboat racing utilizing J24’s and a J22 provided by the RMC Yacht Club. The RMC sail team competes both locally in the lively Kingston sailing community and across Canada.
