Find a friend to sail with, or meet someone new! Handle an exciting spinnaker and trapeze setup on a doublehanded club420...
...Or choose to chart your own course on a responsive, demanding singlehanded Laser Radial!
We have several options to complete our mandatory one-week orientation and learn-to-race clinic.
Two full-day courses for club 420s will take place June 22-26, and June 29-July 3. Evening clinics on the same dates will take place for Laser Radials, and one evening clinic for 420s will run from June 29-July 3.
This week will teach you how to rig your chosen boat, give you practice packing it for travel regattas, and introduce you to the unique methods to make it go fast on the water! Whether you intend to continue racing through the summer or not, this clinic will be an excellent window to performance sailing beyond the scholastic scene.
Once you have completed a clinic, you have the fundamentals, but need to keep practicing to increase your skills! Racing practices will be held regularly from July 6th through August 14th in our various boats. Typically, Lasers and 420s will practice separately.
