What's Included

The Optimist Blue class will allow students the opportunity for truly single-handed sailing, and will focus on more advanced sailing and racing techniques (such as starting and stopping, landings, capsizing, upwind strategies, tacking and gibing, etc.) Self-sufficiency will be promoted in the Optimist Blue class, although instruction will remain a key component. On Thursdays, Opti Blue students will participate in the All-Island Race Day in Nantucket's main harbor. Please note that on Thursdays, class pick-up and drop-off will be at Children's Beach Public Boat Ramp on Harbor View Way at the normal times (1pm DO; 3:30pm PU). FAQ: When is a sailor "too big" for an Opti? NCS Opti coaches recommend that a sailor who is over 115 lbs and/or 5'2" sail in either Whalers Class, if under 12 years of age, or Teen Green, if 12 years of age or older. Private lessons may also be taken. If a sailor is over this size, but under 12 years of age, please email the Program Director, Emily Taylor - we're happy to find the right fit for your student.
