Club 420 Sessions

Challenge and fun as sailors and skills grow.

Ages 13-17
Week long sailing courses for beginners and intermediate sailors.  Multi-week Race camps are offered for advanced sailors.

Club 420 Explorer

For sailors 13+ who may have aged out of Opti Explorer or Racer. This is also a great place to start if you are new to sailing and over the age of 13 (or under 13 and over 120 lbs). In this five-day session, students will learn on-the-water safety, tacking, gybing, sail trim, and boat handling. No experience is required to enroll in the C420 Explorer class.  This course can be taken multiple times.  Each week your sailor builds upon the fundamentals of sailing.

Ages 13 – 17
Prerequisite: None!
Monday-Friday 9:00 am – 3:30 pm

We also offer One and Two day introductory courses to the Club 420.

Sailors will continue to work on points of sail and boat control. There will also be more advanced topics introduced like spinnaker sailing, reading the wind/weather, and other more advanced boat handling techniques.

Students will be required to demonstrate their knowledge on the first day of class.  Anyone without enough experience will be moved to the Explorer class.

The Club 420 Racer class is an exciting opportunity to fully experience the fun and challenge of sailing at a higher level.

On select Fridays, the Club 420 Racers are encouraged to compete in local TCYS regattas. These regattas are held around the metro area. There is an extra registration fee for each regatta, and parents are asked to provide transportation.

Wednesday Night Racing

Test your sailing skills every Wednesday this summer! SCSS will host and provide boats for an evening small boat racing series. This series is open to any sailor who has taken past classes at SCSS or can pass a basic sailing skills test.  This race series is all about improving your sailing skills in a fun, low pressure, casual race environment.

Never raced before? Don’t let that hold you back. Our instructors will go over the basic rules of the road and starting sequence.

Adults and youths are welcome to attend.  This is also a great way for parents to sail with their kids!

Wednesday night racing is for sailors of all ages who have some experience sailing. If you are unsure if you qualify, click here to contact us.

All sailors under 18 years of age must have a parent/guardian present (either on the sailboat, as a volunteer on a coach boat, or on shore).

Due to construction at our launch ramp, Wednesday Night Racing is temporarily postponed.
