2020 Fall Update
Unfortunately, we have reduced programming capacity due to COVID-19 and will not be running our Youth Racing program this season. If you are interested in getting your child out sailing, check out our Custom Courses for Youth Page.
What We Do
HRCS trains high-school-aged racing crews and skippers to compete against each other in youth racing series in spring and fall. We teach racing fundamentals, seamanship, leadership and communication skills to stimulate personal development through competition.
- Learn the essentials of racing
- Weekly practices for 3-6 participants per boat
- Compete against other youth teams in Spring and fall Regattas
- Become proficient in spinnaker use
- Learn strategy and tactics then put them into practice out on the water
- Advanced sail trim for racing
- Spinnaker use
- Close-quarters maneuvering under sail
The race class is scheduled during spring and fall seasons according to enrollees' availability. Most teams practice on Fridays from 4:30 to 6:30 pm.
