About the Class

Boats: Optis with another sailor or by themselves. Sometimes in other boats, just for fun.

Scups are beginning Opti sailors and are expected to master Opti rigging, docking, helming, basic right of way rules, terminology, knots and safety concepts. All sailors should have their own Opti. Boats may sometimes be rented from club members or older sailors, but used boats are widely available around the Cape for purchase. Sturgis Boatworks is the premier Optimist dealer in our area.

Program Director

I have such fond childhood memories learning how to sail at HPYC and am so excited to return as the Program Director. I am a teacher by trade and have raised 5 children who love sailing. For the past 10 years, I have been at Tabor Academy, where I was selected to revamp their summer sailing program.

I am committed to making our program one that is engaging and fun for the whole HP community. I look forward to meeting the people I don’t know and reconnecting with old friends!
