OPTI RACE TEAM

Recommended ages 8-14 and under 130lbs.

 

Our Opti race team is comprised of both Opti Green and RWB sailors. Opti Green is for the beginner racer who will learn the ins and outs of how to make their boat go fast, racing strategies and tactics, and the racing rules of sailing.

 

Once an Opti Green sailor masters the basics of racing and performs well at local regattas they will then graduate to Opti RWB where they will continue to improve and learn more advance techniques, sail setup, and strategies. 

 

Racing students should expect to spend more time practicing in all weather conditions. Racers and parents should be prepared to regattas throughout the summer. A usual summer comprises of three 1-day regattas and the 3-day Junior Race Week towards the end of summer. more info: nbya.org
