Fall Sailing Program

The fall is a wonderful time to sail on the Chesapeake Bay, warm water, great winds, and multiple programs designed for our race teams.

  • Optimist:  The fall optimist program will be run on Mondays and Wednesdays after school from 3:30PM- 6:30PM as well as on  Sunday from 12PM-4PM.  Additional Green Fleet or RWB Only practices may be designated.
  • ILCA: 6 and 4.7 sailors looking to continue their singlehanded development will train for six Sundays with Coach Steve Sparkman from 9AM-4PM. These sessions are to help sailors fine tune their skills and prepare for the Cressy qualifier and trophy as well as Midwinters.
  • High School Sailing: HYC has partnered with Youth Sailing Virginia to help grow high school short track racing in the FJ. Practices are held Tuesday and Thursday from 4PM-7PM.
  • c420/i420 Class: sailors focusing on increasing their skills in the boat, in order to prepare themselves for future regattas or to keep their skills in check before midwinters.  The 420 program will be clinic based only with premier coaching.

*All Classes are subject to daylight but plan to go until the end of October, the Optis will expand their weekend practices once after school practices can no longer occur.
