In our CANSail 5&6 420 Race Program complex sailing skills are acquired and refined. Athletes in this program are members of the NYC Club 420 Race Team and work with our certified race coach to master sailing techniques to sail fast. During this month-long program participants train to compete in local and regional regattas. In additional to on-water training, theoretical topics are also covered, including racing strategy & tactics, rules and weather.
Regular weekly program runs from 8:00 AM to 3:00 PM Monday to Friday, however participants will also attend weekend regattas throughout the season. Parent participation for regatta travel is crucial to the success of the program and building a winning team. Participants must have completed CANSail level 4 or be able to demonstrate CANSail 4 level skills in order to register for this program.
In addition to our summer programming there are also Spring and Fall training opportunities available to practice sailing skills in the windier shoulder seasons.
