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.

40 Days till @chsraceweek! (not that we are excited or anything..🤪) ⁣
⁣⁣
⁣Last time we were at race week, this happened.. So crazy that after 2 years this video is STILL getting shared. On Facebook, the video has been seen over 200,000 times with nearly 4,000 shares. May have been a hair ball ending to our regatta, but it definitely grew our fan base and is still a great story. We are so excited one of our boats will be racing this year! ⛵️

AFTER DARK PROGRAM 🌙
⁣⁣
⁣- Last practice of the season was a little slow, but luckily the breeze filled in after the fog cleared later on. Steep learning curve this week with using phones to navigate around a small, tight course. Setting waypoints and accurately setting the distance and heading from the starting line was a key factor to success. Boats get packed up and stored away for the winter next week. So sad to see the season go by so quickly, sailors are already eager for the spring! 🤗 ⁣
⁣⁣
⁣- BIG THANK YOUS to Niantic Bay Yacht Club for hosting our program, coaches Doug, Lincoln, Fritz and OJ for all your hard work and effort to get teams on the water safely every week, and Cindy for volunteering your time to coordinate the sportboat program once again! ⁣

Geoff wrote the book on earning the respect of his competitors and even made sailing fun for everyone in his wake. Crushing that most of our team never got to know him, but he loved everything our program was about. Read on kids and dream of a life like his... Geoff, you will truly be missed. Our hearts are with the entire Ewenson family, especially @nick_e_nice and @maryewenson . Read the article through the link in our bio.
