What's Included

The Optimist racing team focuses on the more advanced aspects of racing, such as performance boat handling, acceleration, upwind strategies, mark-rounding, downwind and reaching tactics, advanced tacking and gibing techniques, tactical finishes, sailing rules, etc. Students are both invited and expected to travel with the team to compete in a number of on and off-island regattas, which will be scheduled by the Optimist racing coach. On-island events include the Admiral Sir Isaac Coffin Cup and Jobson Cup in July and Nantucket Race Week in August. Students from NCS, Nantucket Yacht Club and the Great Harbor Yacht Club Opti race teams will compete against each other in an all-island series each Thursday held at a mutual on-island sailing location.

About This Organizer
