This race team is devoted to teaching novice sailors and beginning racers the fundamentals of racing, including boat speed and handling, tactics and strategy, whistle and flag starts, and mark rounding. The team is coached by college-level sailors, often graduates of our junior program, who concentrate on building confidence and taking young sailors to the next level of sailing in a safe and fun environment. The team will practice or attend regattas Thursdays through Sundays, and no sessions are mandatory. In 2018, we will support an Opti Green Fleet Team and an Opti White/Blue/Red Team as part of the program. Additionally, if five or more Lasers register, we will also support a Laser Team. Regattas are centered in the Southern Bay where overnight stays are unnecessary, and will include junior regattas at Ware River Yacht Club, Rappahannock River Yacht Club, Hampton Yacht Club, and our two summer regattas: the Commonwealth of Virginia Junior Championship and the Annual One-Design. Ages 7 to 15. (The team may be subdivided based on age.) June 23 through August 12.
