The MIT Sailing Pavilion, the first facility constructed for college sailing, was built in 1936. It is now known as the birthplace of today's collegiate sailing. The first ten Dinghy Championships of the newly organized Intercollegiate Yacht Racing Association (ICYRA) were sailed on the Charles River in MIT's fleet of cat-rigged, wooden Tech Dinghies. To this day, MIT continues to host more college regattas than any other site in the country.

MIT provides practice time for local colleges and high schools who do not have boats and sites of their own. The Pavilion is open to anyone with an MIT ID. They offer weekly learn-to-sail classes free to members of the MIT Community.
