About This Activity

Don't freak! We use a waitlist for this class to be sure students are qualified. If you're qualified, sign up on the waitlist and we will accept you in the class until we run out of space. You'll hear from us.

In this class, students will learn advanced race theory and work towards advanced level regattas in the Red, White, and Blue race fleet. Advanced boat mechanics and handling will be taught to students as well as beginner team racing. Students in this course are required to come for a full two weeks, although all 8 weeks is suggested. They will practice and act as a team, possibly holding fundraisers and encouraging their teammates to succeed.

Regatta schedules will be posted in early April and all students in the class will attend regattas during the week. Not only will all students attend the regatta, but no instruction will take place at MRYC during the regatta. The class fees include coaching at the regatta.

The daily schedule will likely change each day. Traveling to regattas may mean prepping trailers in the evening, early morning rendezvous, meal stops on the way home. Coaches will communicate plans for regattas and traveling. Instruction takes place at the Club when regattas are not the activity of the day.

An important part of being a racing sailor is organizing and packing your gear to get to a regatta, rigging and racing, and then reversing the process to go home. Parents play an active role in transporting boats and students. Parent regatta coordinators will help with details.
