There is an incredible range of competitive sailing opportunities for children ages 8 to 18. Most young sailors begin in the small Optimist dinghy and enjoy sailing in local regattas or traveling around the state of Florida. Sailors aged 14-18 may sail in the single handed Laser or the 2 person 420 dinghy used in High School and College sailing programs. The most talented youth sailors travel to National events with hopes of representing the US in international sailing regattas.
Training focuses on advanced tuning & rigging, racing rules of sailing, perfecting sailing techniques in a variety of conditions, tactics & strategies, physical fitness & nutrition, and focus & concentration for extended periods of time.
