We are excited to introduce opportunities for motivated junior sailors who want to develop and improve their sailing and racing skills.  We strive to provide a positive and fun environment where sailors will learn advanced techniques and strategies.

We would like to thank the ECSA, Fishers Island YC, The Mystic Shipyard, Mystic River Mudheads, NESS, Niantic Bay YC, Spicers Marina, and the Wadawanuck YC. Without their support, this team would not be possible.

DONATION LINK

The Mudratz provide youth sailors with excellent coaching and the opportunity to race on boats they might otherwise never sail.  Our sailors have skin in the game as we expect our team members to cover most of the costs of coaching and travel expenses.   Here is a snapshot of how we utilize donations.

FALL MUDRATZ - we know you have questions 🍁❔

Who else is getting excited for the fall season? We have been getting a lot of questions about when and where. MudRatz will be hosted at Niantic Bay Yacht Club this fall and will start the first weekend after Labor Day. We are still working on coaching, so we are not sure what programs will be offered at this time. Don’t worry about registration - it hasn’t opened yet. More info will be released on our website soon. Please direct message us if you have any more questions! ⛵️

Earth Day 🌎. Protecting our environment is a core value of the MudRatz, we work hard to implement sustainable strategies and spread awareness throughout our local community. As a team, it’s sad to see the effects of plastic pollution first hand while we are sailing. Click the link in our bio to read about small steps you can take to help us preserve the environment.
