Optimist Step 2 is designed to bridge the gap between our Beginning Opti program and our Intermediate racing program. This class is perfect for sailors who are not ready to sail RWB fleet, and are just learning how to get around the Green Fleet race course. Sailors will learn the basics of how to sail proficiently upwind on a race course, how to use their telltales, the basic rules, boat set-up and sportsmanship. There are many regatta opportunities for our Step 2 sailors throughout the summer!
