JUNIOR FLEET

RACING TEAM

The WRSC Jr. Racing Team will be developed throughout the summer, based on experience and desire and follows the Junior Sailing School Schedule. They can participate for a full season or just part of one. And they don’t have to start out as racers. Anyone with the desire will be given a chance to see what racing is all about.

 

Coached by our Racing Instructor(s), our Race Team is the natural step for junior sailors who have usually progressed through two or more sessions (a guideline not a requirement), are comfortable with all aspects of boat handling, and have a passion for learning more about sailing and competing. Racers will practice boat handling skills, starting techniques, mark-roundings, while also learning tactics, strategy, racing rules, and so much more. They are still a part of the Junior Sailing School and will not miss out on all of the fun.

 

The team will compete at a variety of Jr. Regatta’s around the Chesapeake Bay. Racing Team participants are required to attend at least one session (Session I strongly suggested as a season warm-up) and are strongly encouraged to participate in all sessions concurrent to regattas that they are competing in. Boats will be provided for those in need. For those not signed up for the concurrent session, boats will be provided depending on boat availability. Personal boats are encouraged for the more serious racers.

 

The regatta schedule will be discussed prior to the beginning of the season and at the start of each session. Racing opportunities exist through-out the summer around the Chesapeake Bay area; including the WRSC Junior Regatta on Monday, July 2, 2018. For those sailing Lasers, events also include the Friday Night Races at WRSC along with the Annual Regattas. Program schedule may be amended based on participation at certain regattas. Regatta entry fees and other costs related to road trips are in addition to sailing school fees.
