Register Now - 2019 Junior Programs

 

Please read the following instructions prior to registering:

  • Enter the name, age, and personal information for your junior sailor actually taking the course as the "Competitor", not the adult registering the sailor. 

  • Please provide the email contact for the adult accompanying the junior sailor to Opti Kids or Junior Week; not the person registering the sailor. 

  • No refunds will be given after registration is closed for that particular class.

  • If you make an error on the Entry Form and are redirected to the same Entry Form to fix the things you have missed, PLEASE NOTE that you may need to re-enter  information- like the Number of Items you wish to buy in the Yellow box.  If you notice that you complete the registration without paying, it will likely be because you failed to re-enter the item choices.  Please register a second time and be careful to select items and then you can pay.  

Online registration begins for members and non-members on February 1; the member preference period ends on February 28; all registration ends on May 15.

Any remaining openings before Junior Week will be filled from the waitlist - please contact Joanna Wensell at joanna.wensell@gmail.com with any questions.
