Our Upcoming Events
Youth Sailing Team
The City of Oakland is looking for sailors to race on the Sailing Team. All 8th – 12th grade sailors are invited to try out. There is absolutely no charge for the tryout and there is no initial commitment necessary.
We are looking for enthusiastic teenagers that are committed to attending weekly practices and participating in regattas.
Commitment and hard work will be the building blocks for all of those involved. The team has the opportunity to compete at regattas against other clubs and high schools. Coach Dan Ouellet is an American Sailing Association certified instructor and has competed at a National Level aboard FJs, El Toros, Bytes, Lasers, and JY-15s. He has coached sailing in the Bay Area for many years.
PRIOR SALING EXPERIENCE REQUIRED
Sailors should have mastered the fundamentals of sailing and be able to sail a single-handed dinghy (BYTE or Laser) around a race course. If you still need to build your skills and confidence, attend the Intro to Sailing Team Course.
We have added Intro to Sailing Team for those who are interested in racing sailboats, but still need to build skills and confidence. Successful graduates will be eligible to join the City of Oakland Sailing Team and compete in local regattas.
Come Race with us!
