The Optimist Race Team is an exciting opportunity to fully experience the fun and challenge of sailing at a higher level. Designed for students who have taken the Opti Intro to Racing Class or demonstrated an ability to handle the boat independently and are familiar with sailboat racing.

Students will improve racing concepts including starts, upwind and downwind sailing, as well as boat trim for speed, racing rules, strategy, tactics, and more. 

We encourage sailors to register for multiple sessions and participate in the popular Twin Cities Youth Sailing regattas on Fridays.  MSC provides Optis and coach support for the TCYS regattas. Regatta entry fees are not included.
