The best way to describe the University of Vermont sailing team is as a cooperative. Team members, alumni, parents and the coach all contribute to keeping the team running smoothly. From helping with coaching duties to fundraising to clerical work, the UVM sailing community pulls it all together. “The way the team is set up, the sailors take on a lot of tasks that an assistant coach might otherwise do,” says Caroline Patten, the team’s head coach. Patten is in her first year of coaching at Vermont, and she says the sailors and local alumni have helped make her first season a success.
