Boats

Sailors typically start in an Optimist dinghy, which is the largest youth sailing class in the world. The "Opti” is safe, stable and easy to rig. Each child will sail his or her own boat. Intermediate and advanced Opti sailors can compete in regattas at HYC and other yacht clubs if they wish.

For sailors that are more advanced, we offer the Laser for singlehanded sailing and the RS Feva as a two person boat. Laser sailors must be 14 years old and weigh 110 lbs to compete in regattas. They can, however, start with a smaller sail. The Laser – an Olympic Class dinghy – is sailed by youths and adults and is one of the most popular sailboats in the world.

The Feva is a two person boat, suitable for children 12 years and up – offers a mainsail, jib and spinnaker. On the Feva, the kids will learn teamwork and multi-sail handling. It offers great training and racing experience for sailors who are ready to move up from an Opti.
