Opti Racing and O’Pen Bic Racing Ages 11 and up:
This is an all day, 3 day per week class for experienced Optimist sailors ages 11 and up. You must provide your own boat to join this class. Regatta participation is a vital part of this class. Students in this class will sail Optimist Dinghies that they own. Sailors are eligible for this class per instructor recommendation and typically after completing 1 or 2 seasons in the Opti Skipper class. This class will participate in the TYC Optimist club series. O’Pen Bic racers will have a separate schedule for away regattas and have a separate class most of the time. Safety skills will still be covered. Racing rules will be introduced and studied along with race course tactics and boat speed and proper rigging and sportsmanship. The focus of this class is racing and the camaraderie and fun that happens on the race course. Students will be encouraged to participate in NBYA sponsored regattas and other local regattas as schedules allow. Parental volunteers are vital to this program. Parents are needed to coordinate carpools, drive sailors to and from regatta sites and trailer boats. Opti Racing class is limited to 10 students and O’Pen Bic racing is limited to 10 students and runs from 9am-4pm Mon. Wed. Fri.
