Regatta and Racing Information

The BSS Race Team — both Optimists and 420s — participates in several sponsored regattas each season. Regattas provide wonderful opportunities for students to race competitively and meet sailors from neighboring clubs. At the discretion of the racing coach, and in accordance with specific guidelines, selected sailors will participate in regattas. Race team members may vary weekly, depending on student enrollment, skill, and interest. We do not guarantee that every student will attend regattas. Coaches will accompany racers to certain identified regattas, and racers may use BSS boats and equipment. Sailors/parents are responsible for paying regatta fees directly.
