About This Activity

The All-Island Opti Race Team is the most advanced program for young Optimist sailors on-island. In 2014, Nantucket Yacht Club, Nantucket Community Sailing and Great Harbor Yacht Club joined their Opti Race teams to offer the All-Island Opti Race Team. The mission is to enhance the experience and skill level of Nantucket Opti racers by improving opportunity for high-level instruction, training and competition. Admittance to the program will be based upon skill level, commitment, maturity and desire to improve and will be by invitation only (by the student's home program director). Team members must commit to a minimum of 2 weeks of participation. The Racing Program 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 gybing techniques, tactical finishes, sailing rules, etc. Students in the class are considered members of a team. Once on the team, sailors are strongly encouraged to continue in the Opti until they "age out' or "weigh out,' meaning they either turn 16 or weigh over 125 pounds. Practices will run from 1:00 PM-4:30 PM Monday-Friday, and will be held at the Jetties Sailing Center. Full day practices may be scheduled. On Thursday (TBD) afternoons, students will compete in the All-island Race Day. Other on-island events include team races and Nantucket Race Week in August, which the Opti Race program team members are encouraged to participate in. While our afternoon Opti Race Team is generally a travel team, competing in a number of off-island regattas around southern Massachusetts, in 2021, we are not planning for off-island travel. This will be an on-island program only.
