(Level 1, 2, 3/race) Ages: 8-13 Prerequisite: JY Class, previous experience, or age 10 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The 8-foot Optimist is the international standard in youth sail training.

We offer full day Optimist classes for beginners (Level 1, first two summer sessions), intermediates (Level 2, after completing two summer sessions), and racers (Level 3/SFYC Race Team). At the beginning of each session, the class will be broken into these three groups based on skill level and experience. Boat ownership is not required but encouraged for post summer sailing.

About This Organizer

In the Spring, Summer, and Fall classes are offered for beginner, intermediate, and advanced sailors. Members and non-members from 7-16 years of age are welcome to participate in these fun and instructional sessions. The Summer Program takes sailors between 7 and 13 years of age and will develop their skills in small prams, like the Optimist, and JY Trainer. For sailors, 8-16 years of age who prefer to stay drier and get the feel of "cruising," classes are available in J24 keelboats. For the young teens with an interest in small boats and/or competition, we have Club Flying Juniors (the high school and college racing boat), 420s, Lasers.

 

When young sailors have mastered all the basic sailing skills they can satisfy their desire for competition by joining the SFYC Racing Teams. Under the guidance of highly skilled coaches, sailors prepare themselves for the challenge of sailing regattas in Optimist Dinghies, CFJs, C420s, Lasers, and 29ers.
