Thank you for your interest in racing opportunities through SSP! Due to the growth in our racing program over the past two years, SSP has restructured our Summer Race Teams to order to better serve our sailor’s development and goals during the summer racing season. This guide serves to explain our new structure and outline the differences between the various subgroups within our teams. Sailors and parents should choose carefully which group their sailor registers to join. Coaches will have provided a recommendation, but sailors may wish to chose another group based on boat focus and/or competition goals.
Our summer team is divided into two main groups and additionally by age and boat focus. For further details and information on how to sign up, click on the team name below.
These sailors are the future of SSP. They are intermediate sailors who are looking to build their skills and are either just starting out racing, or are content competing against their friends at SSP and around Seattle.
These sailors already have a strong background in sailboat racing and are looking to continue to compete, perhaps in a new type of boat. They are intermediate or advanced sailors/racers looking for the next challenge. They (and their family) are prepared to travel around the region to regattas this summer.
