University of Michigan has active student board members to take care of their sailing program. The strong alumni network also helps the university.
As far as the sailing team is concerned, it is owned by Michigan alumni. The Michigan Sailing Club is located on Baseline Lake, which is located in Portage, Michigan. It will take only 30 minute drive to reach the lake from the campus. They established it in 1938 and it has been a big part of the school ever since.
