DYC Junior Race Team is the next step for advanced sailors to progress into the fundamentals of racing and advanced sailing skills. We love to see our race team members also participate in junior regattas on Lake Dillon and other regattas around Colorado and even out of state!
We are offering an 8-week or 4-week practice schedule. Practices will run on Fridays from 2:30pm-5:30pm. We encourage any sailors to use their own boat if you have one. Please see our regatta schedule for events to take part in.
PREREQUISITE: Sailors must have at least one week of Advanced Sailing Camp in this season or a previous season in order to be eligible to participate in Race Team. In addition, please see the recommended skills below.
