This class is recommended for students of ages 12-18 who have mastered their sailing and seamanship skills. Students in this class will hone their boat handling and sail trim skills, and learn the strategies, tactics, and rules of racing. Racing requires good equipment, good technique, and a lot of practice. Experience and training is the name of the game. Racing students should expect to spend more time practicing in all weather conditions.
In an effort to build skills and team camaraderie, our race programs at EBSF are offered 3 days per week for 8 weeks. Students are required to bring their own boats. EBSF has a limited number of boats available for charter. If you need a charter boat please indicate this on your registration form.
In addition to practice, team members will also be expected to participate in regattas around the Bay and Southern New England.
The Singlehanded Race Team will utilize the Laser Radial for practice and Racing. The optimal weight for a radial is 140-175 lbs. Lasers may be available for charter, please contact the EBSF Program Director for assistance.
