Opti Race Team

If your child is really into sailing, they can join our Race Team.  Each summer, we participate in several one-day regattas at near-by yacht clubs.  Our Foundation arranges for the delivery of the Optimist dinghies and kids carpool with parents.  Sailing in a regatta with kids from all over is a great growing experience for your child!

Deciding to be part of our Opti Race Team is a great opportunity for your child to test their sailing skills against other sailors of their age range and experience level.

These events, called “regattas,” are held throughout the summer providing many chances for your sailor to get out on the water, make new friends, and have experiences that they could not have anywhere else. Regattas are typically day long events in which the sailors get out on the water at around 10am and get off the water at around 3pm to enjoy a lunch and an award ceremony with their opponents.

Our Foundation arranges for the delivery of the Optimist dinghies and kids carpool with parents to the event.

Please contact office@nyharborsailing.com for more information about specific events or with any questions about the team.
