Opti Sailing

During the Spring and Fall seasons, we offer an Optimist Racing Program for Advanced, Intermediate and Beginner Sailors. Sailors are broken down into three fleets: Championship Fleet (Red,White,Blue) for advanced sailors, Green Fleet for beginner to intermediate racers, and new this year is the Lime Fleet open to beginner sailors fresh out of the summer program! Sailors must be approved by the Sailing School staff to participate in this racing program.
