Spring OPTIMIST LIGHT GREEN PROGRAM
The SFYC Light Green program is intended for those who have experience from a summer or fall sailing session and want to continue learning the intricacies of optimist sailing and learn how to race. Sailors should be between 8-12 years old, under 90 lbs., less than 5’ feet tall.
The goal of our Light Green program is to develop and foster a love for sail boat racing on the Bay. The group will focus on becoming well-rounded sailors, developing the essential skills necessary to advance into our Green Fleet Race program. Each sailor will be taught general rigging, boat balance, sail trim, elementary racing rules and basic race strategy.
As a participant of our Light Green program, you are not required to own your own equipment (boat, sail, rig). Each sailor will be assigned club equipment that they will use for the duration of the program.
