Optimist/Opti
Our club Optimists can be sailed either single or double-handed.  The quick response of the “Opti” offers immediate feedback on your sailing technique and is great for honing single-handed sailing skills for junior sailors. “Opti’s” are found all over the world, learn more here:  http://www.optiworld.org/
 
Flying Scot
Our Flying Scots have been especially rigged for ease of use and have a variable sail plan to allow for comfortable sailing in a wide range of conditions.  Campers have fun learning the positions on the 19-foot boat at a speed that is easy to handle.  They are excellent boats for some of the campers’ favorite activities like "fire drills" and "alligator fishing" that teach boat handling and safety skills within a game format.

C420
Our C420 sailboats are a stable boat chosen by many junior programs and they offer an ideal transition to a performance boat.  They react more quickly than our Flying Scots and can be sailed easily by two or three junior sailors.  While a simple and forgiving boat to operate, they offer our campers a more active and challenging sail.  C420s are raced in junior programs and are the boat we use in our junior and scholastic programs.  Learn more here: http://www.420sailing.org/
