MUDRATZ LAUNCH NEW CAMPAIGN PRESS RELEASE
This program is all new this year. With the donation of our new Farr 40, we have our sites set on competing at Block Island Race Week! The cost to be part of this program is 100% put towards the shared upkeep of our boats. Coaches are 100% volunteers.
While we have no age limits – the team should be mostly 14 to 23 years old.
We are currently accepting applications for the team up to April 1st!
PLEASE USE THIS LINK TO APPLY NOW.Our head coaches will reach out to you after your application and resume are in.
If you sail with us, please join the Mystic River Mudheads. This organization strongly supports the MudRatz and our team would just not be possible without them. Junior ($15) or family ($35) membership is requested.

Boats, Gear, and Volunteers…
Please make sure sailors are dressed for sailing (drysuits, smocks, gloves, boots, hats) as we sail in ALL weather, rain, wind, snow, and sun. Please bring a snack and re-usable water bottle as well. Each season we see sailors become limited by the clothes they have… dress for success… you would not go onto the ball field without cleats!
Sailors should be ready to sail BY the start of practice each day, we are not paying coaches to get the boat ready, so you should plan to arrive early enough to be ready to sail on time.
Parents and sailors – Please ask how you can help… we are a volunteer team and there is always something that needs to be done each week. Thank you for being part of our team. We really hope to create a good experience for everyone!
MudRatz Mission statement: The mission of the MudRatz is to complement local youth sailing programs by enabling sailors to improve as a team and travel around the world.
