Opti & 420 Race Teams

Opti Race Team

CANSail 3&4

After a long time without an Opti Race Team the Sailing & Racing School revamped our program in 2018 to great success and we are excited to be offering it again in 2019!

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.

Optional 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. $65 per week.
