I am pleased to announce we are continuing a program started last summer for our young sailors, aged 7-13 : Optimist Learn to Race!
This program is for young sailors who have completed a minimum of White Sail I (or are taking it concurrently) and are interested in moving from the skills development side of sailing school, to the competitive side of racing. Racing skills will be taught at a fun, age-appropriate level, and will include navigating a race course, tactics, boat handling skills, and wind and weather knowledge. This program will include CYA curriculum instruction, racing in a juniors-only course area, and some regatta experience. Program cost is $150 .
The program will run from July 8th to August 14th on Friday afternoons and Sunday mornings. Please contact me if you would like more information at 669-7378 or 556-0191.
Volunteers to help with repair work on the Optimists and assistance in coaching are also welcome! Warren Flannery
