This article focuses on the sailing program of the U.S. Naval Academy. The Naval Academy is strengthening its control over a program that has seen changing leadership and shifting direction over the years. Some civilian volunteers, many of them Navy League members, who have been actively involved in the program as skippers for midshipmen cruises are wondering how their roles will change. Naval Academy officials are hoping that increased emphasis on the sailing program will pay dividends for the academy's competitive sailing teams and, in turn, the academy's status.
