Opti Race Team

For LMSS Sailors Age 9 – 15

Opti Race Team is the next step for Opti Learn to Race sailors or young sailors ages 8 – 15 with prior racing experience. Sailors in this course should expect a competitive environment and a rigorous curriculum to improve their skills. This is the first class of the LMSS Race Team and is the best platform to grow young sailors.

  • Intermediate and Advanced groups taught in Opti racing sailboats
  • Students will continually work to improve their skills, focusing on boat speed upwind and downwind, starting practice, mark roundings, boat handling, understanding of the rules, and rigging techniques specific to racing Optis
  • Intermediate sailors will practice with Advanced sailors, but may break off into separate groups if needed
  • Sailors are expected to participate in local and regional events throughout the duration of the session
  • During TCYS events and other LMSS-supported regattas, there will be no practice at LMSS
  • LMSS Summer Opti Charter fee: 100$/session
