In both 1986 and 2007, the College of Charleston Sailing Team won both the Intercollegiate Dinghy National Championship and the Leonard B. Fowle Trophy, awarded annually to the best overall sailing team in the nation. Only three other teams have ever won both honors in the same year. The team was also the Fowle Trophy winner in 1988, 1998, 2012, 2015, and has been second in that competition three times.

Since 1978, the team has qualified 39 times for all annual national collegiate sailing championships, winning 20 of those events. During that time the team produced 101 Men's, Women's and Crew All-Americans, 40 Men's and Women's Honorable Mention All-Americans, four College Sailors of the Year, two Quantum Female Sailors of the Year, and two Sportsmen of the Year. Many team alumni have found success at various national class championships and in international and Olympic competition.

The College of Charleston Sailing Team has been recognized as a champion for many years. The team was formed in 1964 and was a founding member of the South Atlantic Intercollegiate Sailing Association (SAISA) in that same year. In the world of college sailing, the College of Charleston has developed a very special winning tradition.
