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, Club 420, Laser 4.7, Laser Radial, Laser Standard, RS Feva XL and 29er fleets.
In recognition that the best winds are usually during the day between 11am
, we will run our primary practices on Saturday instead of during the week. 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
. Then we will also offer Sundays from 10-4, Tuedays
4:30-6:30, Thursdays 4:30-6:30. Sunday, Tuesday
and Thursday are Wind permitting. If there is no wind we won't go out.
||Saturdays 10:00 - 2:30 PM, Optional Tue, Thu & Sun
||Saturdays 10:00 - 3:00 PM, Optional Tue, Thu & Sun
Please note that these times are subject to change to accommodate the schedules of the participants and coaches.
The Spring 2017 Event Schedule is as follows:
||Marina Del Ray, California
