What's Included

The San Francisco Yacht Club has the largest optimist racing team on the West Coast and one of the biggest in the country. As young Opti sailors progress and become interested in high-level racing, they may be invited to join our Opti Race Team. The Opti Race Team is a yearly commitment of $185, per month.

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.
