Ahoy Green Fleet sailors!
Whether you are a returning Green Fleet sailor or a fresh graduate from the LTS program we are excited to prepare you for your competitive sailing career!
The Green Fleet is a learn-to-race Optimist program open to sailors who are comfortable sailing on their own and who are looking to develop their racing skills. If you enjoy sailing but have never raced don’t be shy! Now is the time to give it a try.
The content to be covered includes improved boat handling skills, tacking and gybing efficiently, starts, mark rounding’s, rights of way and race rules, as well as tactics and strategy. As sailors build their skills the program will adapt accordingly to maximize learning.
Please note, the Green Fleet program is for sailors who should already have their own boats. If you need a hand finding a boat, please don’t hesitate to contact the Sailing School. Note: There are damage conditions applicable if students hire a WSC glass Optimist. Please note availability is limited, contact the WSC office for details.
Each participant will need to bring:
- Spray jacket or/and wetsuit
- A change of warm clothes
- Sunscreen and hat
- Old shoes or rubber boots for sailing
- Optimist, fibre glass
- Conditions apply for groups as staff ratios are a maximum of one instructor to six students for this type of syllabus and also a minimum number of students are required.
It is a pre-requisite for students to be able to swim a minimum of 25m.
