Sailors must provide their own boats for all race teams including the 420 race team.The program consists of practice starting on June 10 (prior to Junior Week), participation in Junior Week, and the 7 weeks following Junior Week with intensive practice and racing. The teams will be coached by world-class professional coaches.

In addition to practice at Fishing Bay, the Teams travel to regattas throughout the Chesapeake Bay and other regional events. In recent years the teams have travelled to National Championships in New England, Canada, Minnesota and Michigan. A limited number of spaces on club trailers are available to transport boats to regattas. Parents should be prepared to transport their sailor's boats if space is not available on club trailers. Typically, the Teams take 1 day a week off; the remainder of the week is filled with practice, travel, and/or regattas.
Additional fees/costs in addition to the standard fee rate may be assessed to members of the Race Teams due to unforeseen expenses associated with the Teams' coaches, travel expenses, and equipment.
All registrants must have prior approval of the Race Team Director and Junior Division Commander, Doug Bendura (Doug.Bendura@gmail.com). In the event of the team reaching capacity, preference will be given by the Race Team Director and Junior Division Commander to prior Race Team members.
To register, please follow the Registration Table link on the navigation bar on the left. Program fees are outlined on the registration page. You must have prior approval to register.
