SAYC Sailing Center Sail Team
The only thing more fun than learning to sail, is learning to race your sailboat!
SAYCSC has an established Sail Team program operating annually in the fall and spring. During our Sail Team seasons, your sailor will learn to race an Optimist, Laser or 420 sailboat depending on age, ability and size.
The Sail Team is comprised of an Opti Development & Practice, team, Opti Green team, an Opti Advanced (RWB) team, a Laser team, and a c420 team. The SAYCSC race team is a unique experience and has been growing in size over the years. As a member of the SAYCSC Sail Team your child will attend multiple practices a week under the coaching and supervision of US Sailing Certified Sailing Instructors, and participate in 3-7 traveling regattas per season. In addition to regattas, SAYCSC hosts clinic days for each team, coached by world championship sailors and coaches. These clinic weekends are immersive and challenging, and scheduled just before our Junior Olympic regattas.
Our Sail Team mission is "To encourage all Sailors to strive to for excellence both on and off the water while having fun and being a team player. SAYCSC Sail Team emphasizes sportsmanship, teamwork, self-discipline, and personal character to produce well-rounded athletes and foster a team spirit." We pride ourselves upon our inclusive family atmosphere and personal growth opportunities both on and off the water.
Our "Try Out" day for the fall racing season will be on Sunday, August 13th. Click the link for more information: Try Out Registration
For all new parents and sailors, please plan to attend our informational Parent and Sailor meeting on Saturday, September 9th. We will discuss all details of racing and what the program entails as well as answer all questions you have.
*Race team participation requires prior experience - your child must have attended multiple weeks of Sail Camp or have prior racing experience to join the Sail Team.
If you are interested in our after-school programs, but not interested in racing, we also offer Adventure Sailing, Little Skippers, and an RB Hunt After-school program. Please use the links provided and email Sail Director with any questions.
