The Laser/C420 Intro-to-Race & Race class is for sailors who have successfully completed two sessions of the Opti Intermediate class, or can demonstrate similar skills. This class focused on creating broad sailing expertise and building lifelong general sailing as well as sailboat racing skills. There will be both on and off the water instruction and sailors will sail in a Laser or C420 dinghy. C420s ARE TWO PERSON BOATS AND MUST EITHER BE SIBLING/HOUSING TOGETHER PAIRS, OR AN APPROVED IN WRITING BY MSA MATCHED PAIR FOR ALL SESSIONS THE PAIR SAILS. All other sailors will be single handing Lasers. The Advanced and Race Laser/C420 class is for sailors who have successfully completed two sessions of the 420 Intermediate class or can demonstrate similar skills. There will be both chalkboard (pre and post sailing) and on-the-water instruction. This class has a hands-on, mastery-of-sailing focus. When complete, sailors will be well-rounded, independent, and confident sailors capable of sailing in most in-shore weather conditions. Sailors who choose to race, will participate in local and potentially travel regattas in the Mass Bay area and beyond depending on COVID restrictions, race readiness, and instructor guidance. This class is best for sailors who are 13 - 18 years old with demonstrated intermediate or better sailing skills or who have successfully completed two sessions of C420 Intermediate or an equivalent course. Tuition includes use of MSA boats and trailers for travel regattas.
