420/Laser Practice

Sailors in this program will be learning on their choice of Club 420 boats or lasers. Week to week there are different events that sailors may want to practice on so they are able to switch between boats if needed. For C420 sailing, you do not need to have a partner to register. Club 420 experience would be great, but if the sailor is knowledgeable about sailing and wants to try the 420 out please register. It includes sailing fundamentals, basic into advanced boat handling, seamanship (knots, weather, etc.), water safety & sportsmanship. At the end of the first practice please plan on staying for an additional 15-30 minutes to go over season goals, upcoming events and regattas and more.

Time: 4:30pm- 6:30pm

Dates: Wednesdays - September 5, 12, 19 and 26.  October 3, 17, 24 and 31

Sailors should plan to sail in our Friday Night Lights series (details below) as well as Ocean/ Fall series and the Midlands regatta (November 3rd & 4th.)
