420 Race Team

4-Week Advanced Racing - Prerequisite CANSail 4
Our 420 Race Team participants are taught complex sailing skills based on the CANSail 5&6 curriculum. Athletes in this program are members of the NYC Club 420 Race Team and work with our certified race coach to master sailing techniques to sail fast. During this month-long program, participants train to compete in local and regional regattas. In additional to on-water training, theoretical topics are also covered, including racing strategy & tactics, rules and weather.

Regular weekly program runs Monday to Friday, however participants will also attend weekend regattas throughout the season. Parent participation for regatta travel is crucial to the success of the program and building a winning team. Participants must have completed CANSail level 4 or be able to demonstrate CANSail 4 level skills in order to register for this program.
