KYC Race Team

Teams/Programs

Once a sailor has achieved their White and Bronze Sail levels, they can continue to advance their skills through the Silver, and Gold levels.

The Race programs are for sailors who want to continue to apply their technical skills and develop racing skills. Silver Sail VI and Gold Sail VII start by introducing sailors to racing, and moves into advanced racing techniques. They cover racing rules, sail theory, tactics and advanced boat handling skills in almost any wind condition. These courses are taught in “420’s” and the sailors are expected to participate in regattas outside the club on the Ontario regatta circuit including CORK. Full time coaching is provided. Single-handed racers are required to bring their own boats and will receive a discount if they do so.

Programs:

Learn to Race is a program intended for sailors who already have their Bronze Sail levels and wish to continue to improve their sailing and racing skills but are not ready or able to dedicate a full 8 weeks. Sailors in this program will be able to work towards their Silver level but will likely not be able to complete this in 4 weeks. Please note that space in this program is very limited as the club has a limited number of double handed race boats.

Race Team is a program for sailors who are motivated and have a keen interest in racing and who wish to work through their Silver and Gold Sail levels. These sailors are expected to participate in an extensive regatta schedule and parents will be required to drive and chaperone at regattas.

Opti, 29er and Laser/Radial Race Programs are also offered. Please see the info included in the application form documents
