HYC Race Teams
Does your sailor have a passion for racing, advancing their sailing skills to a whole new level or want to see themselves on a college sailing team or even the Olympics? Well then your child should join our race team!
All of our sailors learn and practice sailboat racing skills. However, junior sailors can further develop their racing skills by joining the HYC Race Teams and competing in regattas at HYC, other yacht clubs around the Chesapeake Bay and beyond. You do not have to own your own boat to join our teams. Make sure your child joins the CBRYA Junior Membership and US Sailing to get discounts on regatta fees and other various discounts at retail stores.
NEW FOR 2018! HYC will be partnering with Norfolk Yacht and Country Club to provide our sailors with the best racing experience ever! HYC and NYCC will be joining forces to have one Opti Race Team and one c420 Race Team. We will be alternating practice weeks between HYC and NYCC to provide a better on the water experience. This means we will have better competition on the water, Opti and c420 Team Racing practices, decreased housing costs and more numbers to the trailering pool. All registration will go through Hampton Yacht Club’s Online Registration.
We will be hosting an informational meeting for both Opti and c420 Race Teams at Norfolk Yacht Club on May 22nd at 6:30pm in the Snack Bar of the Athletic Building. Please attend! This is open anyone interested in joining the Race Teams or anyone already signed up for the Race Teams so we can discuss the schedule and practicing.
