   Opti Skills Clinic = $30Wed 1:30-3:30pm, Groups I and II   

Opti Skills Clinic offers beginning sailors an opportunity to hone their sailing fundamentals with a little extra instruction one afternoon per week. Parents should be committed to helping their child improve by encouraging participation in weekend races. The program is a stepping stone for kids interested in joining racing teams and an opportunity to get more comfortable with recreational sailing. Signup online, but please note that a coach will evaluate and make final determination if this clinic is appropriate for your child.

   Opti Race Team = $60/wk (2 wk min) — T & Th 1:30-4pm, Group I-III    

Opti Race Team is for Opti sailors who have solid fundamental sailing skills and who participate in weekend races. The focus is to develop and hone racing skills and strategies. The Opti Race Team is expected to participate in afternoon practices, weekend races, and inter-club regattas. Moving from Opti Skills Clinic to Opti Race Team is a major accomplishment and requires coach approval. 

Opti Race Team sailors must be at least 8 years-old and signup for either a minimum of 2 weeks. Opti ownership is recommended but not required. A limited number of club boats will be available with coach approval and a rental fee.  A minimum 2-week registration is required.


Opti Race Team will only be offered if there are sufficient registrations. 

Any loss or damage to NLGYC boats or equipment in clinics, team activities, or regattas, other than normal wear, will be reported to the program director and is the responsibility of the sailors and their parents. Both skipper and crew equally share the responsibility.
