Screen Shot 2015-08-15 at 10.10.40 AM

This class is intended to sharpen racing skills for returning SBYSF skippers, or other skippers with comparable sailing backgrounds. Racing skills are practiced on and off of the water to help participants improve at an accelerated pace. While personal equipment is recommended, especially for participants who are competing on a regional or national level, the SBYSF has charter racing Optis available on a first come, first serve basis. Participants who start in the Opti Racing I group can graduate to the Opti Racing II group by mastering certain skill requirements outlined in our Opti Racing Skill Evaluation Sheet. This class often participates in regattas. Please see the SBYSF Calendar for specific dates.  Sailors will learn intermediate and advanced boat handling techniques, as well as racing strategies and tactics.  Must be recommended to the class by a coach.

Class Capacity : 10
