Event Managers

  • Event Chair: Doug Bendura

Starting Friday, June 24 - August 14, 2016

Opti Development Team:  June 24 through August 14.  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; 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. These coaches work closely with the sailors to develop their individual skills and confidence on the water, as well as to introduce 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 24 through August 14. 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.
