Opti Race Team

WFC offers premier youth racing programs that rank amongst the best on Long Island. Featuring high-quality charter equipment, exceptional small group and individualized coaching, team trailer and included boat transportation to regattas, WFC Race Teams have the edge. Youth racing is an exciting circuit of competition ranging from the local to international level. The WFC Race Team travels out of West Harbor to compete against youth sailors from other programs in the Junior Sailing Association of Long Island Sound (JSA). The WFC Opti Race Team (ORT) is for those who have mastered Opti Prep and are ready to race. Sailors practice boat-handling and sail trim as they learn racing rules and tactics in preparation for competing at area regattas across Long Island. Session registration fee includes coaching, charter boat fee, and boat transportation to regattas. WFC may not transport sailors but will help to arrange carpools. Sailors may sign up for the whole season and receive half off ALL fall clinics. Also available: Pay per play sessions; clinic days; in-house events and out-of-session per diem practice and regatta rates.
