Racing Dues

August 16, 2017

Please submit dues below by entering the sailor’s name, and hit pay now. You can either use an existing paypal account or pay by credit card without an account.

Note:

Summer dues are $200 for SPOT and SPYS sailors. There is a ‘plus $20’ option that adds an additional $20 dollars to the sailor’s dues. This is a completely voluntary extra contribution that will go towards helping offset scholarships awarded to teammates. The dues amount is completely up to each family and will in no way change a sailor’s standing or opportunities on the team. Thanks for helping out the program!

  • Sail Sand Point is proud to offer full scholarships to any youth racing participants in need. If you would like to apply for a scholarship, please print out the Youth Racing Scholarship Application, follow the instructions, and return it to the office.

New Class- Hobie Wave Experience!

May 15, 2017

A class for adults (ages 14+) who would like to try out sailing without committing to a full class. Hobie Wave Experience will run each Wednesday and Sunday, 6-8 PM starting after Memorial Day.  Register here!

 

This class is a quick introduction to sailing the Hobie Wave, also known as the “sailboat with training wheels.” In two hours, it will give people a taste of small boat sailing on a simple and safe platform. Our goal with this class is to provide adventurous folks an inexpensive opportunity to sail and potentially pass the skills proficiency test after just a class or two. once you pass the skills test you can continue to sail and grow on your own outside of class. We will cover basic sailing theory, tacking and gybing, rigging, and capsizing on the 14′ Hobie Wave catamaran. If there is no wind we will take to the water on paddleboards and/or kayaks.
