Cardinal Sailing is ranked No. 12 nationally in Sailing World's fall women's poll and No. 14 in the coed division entering the season.

Stanford was one of only eight programs last year to compete in all three national championships, after sweeping the Pacific Coast Collegiate Sailing Conference team, coed and women's championships in May. Stanford finished 18th at Coed Nationals in June and 13th at the women's championship that same week.

The Cardinal, which opens up September 24-26 at the PCCSC Singlehanded Championships, return all-conference sailors Hannah Burroughs, Nick Dugdale, Eliza Richartz, and Rebecca King. King was named all-PCCSC for both the women's and coed divisions.
