Opti Development Team: June 26th through August 15th. Originally conceived as a stepping stone to the Opti Race Team, "ODT" has grown into a force of its own! The sailors meet for practices or regattas Thursdays through Sundays; and in consideration of working parents and tired sailors, no session or regatta is mandatory. For most of the summer the team attends regattas close to home in the southern bay, where overnight stays are not required. The team is coached by college level sailors who are often graduates of our Junior Division who work closely with the sailors to develop their individual skills and confidence on the water, as well as racing techniques. We have the option to sub-divide the team based on age and experience, so that all can learn in a safe and friendly environment. Ages 7 to 15. More info at http://www.fbyc.net/Juniors/OptiDevel.
Laser Development Team: June 26th through August 15th. New this year is the Laser Development Team! It is intended as an introduction to the Laser, and as a bridge between the Opti and Laser Race Teams. It is appropriate for any junior who is new to the Laser Radial, no matter their racing experience. Approx. ages 12 to 18. More info at https://www.fbyc.net/Juniors/LaserDevel.
Opti and Laser Race Teams: June 13th through August 15th.
