Opti & 420 Race Teams

Opti Race Team

*NEW PROGRAM* CANSail 3&4

NYC is bringing Optis back in 2018! After a long time without an Opti Racing Team the Sailing & Racing School is excited to be offering this program again!

The Opti Race Team is the perfect program for sailors who have already completed their CANSail 2 level, but want to keep sailing in Optis. During a 3-week session participants will continue to develop their sailing skills in the single-handed Optimist dinghy. Our certified Opti Race Coach will provide support in training and will introduce sailors to the rules of sailboat racing. Each session will culminate in competition at a regatta, where they will get to apply their skills on a race course against other novice sailors.

Our program runs from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm Monday to Friday, however participants may also attend weekend regattas. Early drop off at 8:00 AM and late pick up at 5:00 PM is available for an additional $30 per week. Parent participation for regatta travel is crucial to the success of the program and building a winning team. Participants must have completed CANSail level 2 or be able to demonstrate CANSail 2 level skills in order to register for this program.

*NEW IN 2018* Lunch Program, why pack a lunch when we can make one for you? NYC's dining room will put together a delicious meal for your child, including a nutritious lunch and  healthy snack. Sample lunch menu - COMING SOON! $60 per week.
