Building on skills learned in Intermediate Youth, this 6-Week class will introduce students to racing including the Rules of Sailing, starting sequences, course management, mark rounding techniques, boat handling, and race strategy. This class is designed for our most advanced youth sailors who already have a strong understanding of sailing theory and are able to demonstrate more advanced boat handling techniques in a wide range of conditions
Students will be sailing within our Advanced Youth class, however in addition to the goals of the standard course will be working on mastery of skill and will be competing in BAYS regattas following each session. Although skills and topics will be repeated, the student will gain mastery by refining each skill and gaining experience through much more time on the water.
Regattas will be organized through Bay Area Youth Sailing (http://www.bayarea-youthsailing.com/) and held locally at the end of each session for a total of 4 planned regattas. Parents will be sent information on how to register their child and will pay the registration fee (usually $40-$50). *Families using TISC’s scholarships should coordinate with the Program Manager to register for regattas.
TISC will provide boats, wetsuits, and lifejackets along with the team coach(s).
Parent engagement is a huge part of this program. TISC will facilitate and help coordinate transportation to and from regattas, however it will ultimately be the responsibility of each parent to ensure their child arrives at the locations. TISC will need as much help from parents as possible and will send out requests as needed.
Regatta schedule is as follows:
June 23-24 @ RYC- Richmond, CA
July 14-15 @ EYC- Alameda, CA
Aug 11-12 @ SFYC- Belvedere, CA
Sept. 1-2 @ TISC- Treasure Island
