The objective of High School sailing is to practice and race at the High School level, with an emphasis on advanced skills and high intensity training in the Collegiate FJ class. With the opportunity to practice on a consistent basis, students will have the ability to improve rapidly, and prepare for future sailing in college and elsewhere. Practices will be geared predominantly towards racing, but may include training of new crews and team members, when necessary.
8 Collegiate FJs will be provided for practice and races, as well as the necessary sails, sheets, rudder and tiller.
Trailers will be provided, but it will be the responsibility of the parents to transport boats and trailers to and from each event.
Students will be responsible for personal equipment including PFD and a High School Race Log, which will be kept separate of all other race logs.
Anyone between 8th and 12th grade is eligible to join the race team. However, participation is at the discretion of the KHYF Coaching staff and Board of Directors. Simply get in touch with the coach, and ask for a try-out!
