The X-boat is the next step for Opti Intermediate/Advanced sailors. Please note that families must provide their own boat for participation, but don’t let that stop you! Used boats are inexpensive and easy to come by. Please reach out to [email protected] if you are interested in purchasing an X-Boat and/or interested in connecting with a parent of an X boat sailor.
In this session, sailors will learn how to effectively communicate with their crew, strengthen their knowledge of proper rigging and tuning techniques and develop their racing tactics/strategy. By the end of the session, sailors should feel confident competing at regattas required by LMSS coaches and staff, including the ILYA X Championship.
Sailors will be shuttled to Bug Island with their equipment, ready to start class at listed time.
Registration is per boat which includes the skipper and crew. All crews MUST have filled out an online waiver of liability prior to attending class. The waiver can be accessed here: https://www.smartwaiver.com/v/lmss/
