About the Class
Boats: 420's and Sunfish.
Performance and Speed is a class for children who enjoy sailing, enjoy some thrills, and want to try out more high-performance boats. Sailors in this class will learn how to rig, sail, and race 420's. They will be taught how to plane in their boats, surf the waves out in the Sound, and to sail as fast as possible. When ready, they will use trapezes and learn to fly spinnakers. While the pure thrill of adrenaline sailing is one goal of this class, students will also be encouraged to race in some local regattas. As always, the emphasis will remain on fostering a fun environment for our sailors. Children interested in enrolling in Performance and Speed should have previous sailing experience.
