Our Opti Race CANSail 3&4 Program builds on sailing skills learned in CANSail 1&2, while also introducing elements of sailboat racing. This program is specifically tailored for younger sailors who would like to continue sailing in the smaller, single-handed Optimist dinghy, but who are competitive and love the challenge of racing. Each session will culminate in competition in a local regatta, where sailors will be able to apply all the new skills they have learned.
Regular weekly program runs from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM Monday to Friday, however participants will also attend at least one regatta each session, which may occur on a weekend. Parent participation for regatta travel is crucial to the success of the program and building a winning team. Participants must have completed CANSail level 2 or be able to demonstrate CANSail 2 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.
