West Vancouver Yacht Club is home to one of the most active junior racing programs in Western Canada, the North Shore Sailing Team. The club has actively supported youth sailing for over 20 years, and athletes from WVYC have gone on to compete in national and world championship regattas.

Since 2007, the North Shore Sailing Team (NSST) has provided sailors with the opportunity to develop their skills as racers and train with experienced sailing coaches to improve their performance at targeted events.

This year, the NSST will support Opti Green, Opti Advanced, Laser 4.7, Laser Radial, Laser Standard, RS Feva XL, Club 420 and 29er fleets.

In recognition that the best winds are usually during the day between 11am and 3pm, we will run our primary practices on Saturday. This will allow us time to prepare before hitting the water, make better use of our time on the water by setting marks and running practice races, and time at the end for debriefing and cleanup. We will also offer Tuesdays and Thursdays from 4:30-6:30 and Sundays from 12 to 4 pm. If there is no wind we may not go out.

Team Training Days
Opti Green Saturdays 10:00 - 4:00 PM, Optional Tue, Thu 4:30 - 6:30, Sunday 12 - 4 pm
Opti Advanced Saturdays 10:00 - 4:00 PM, Optional Tue, Thu 4:30 - 6:30, Sunday 12 - 4 pm
Lasers, Fevas & 29ers

Saturdays 10:00 - 4:00 PM, Optional Tue, Thu 4:30 - 6:30, Sunday 12 - 4 pm
Thursday Pizza night and strategy sessions prior to regatta events

Please note that these times are subject to change to accommodate the schedules of the participants and coaches. Some fleets may not practice all four days. The coaches will work out a schedule that best suits their fleet.

I would like to meet with parents on Thursday September 7th at 5:30 pm in the Yachting Centre at the West Vancouver Yacht Club. This is our first practice night so we can discuss the plan for the fall. Any sailors and families interested in joining the North Shore Sailing Team are welcome to attend and will be able to answer any questions you have.
