The "Tech Dinghy" was invented by an MIT professor in 1935, and they've remained an important part of life at the school ever since. Not only does MIT host the most collegiate regattas in the nation, but according to their wiki, 1 in 5 students will learn how to sail by the time they graduate.


Once a month, the MIT Sailing Pavilion stays open until midnight, allowing its members to take a dinghy out for some "moonlight sailing" on the river. Friends of members are welcome — as are strangers — but remember to BYOB.
