Thank you for your interest in racing at Sail Sand Point! We are pleased to offer a number of youth racing programs year-round for a wide range of ages. This page serves as a guide to our racing programs over our different seasons of operation. For more detail on each team, visit their sub-pages.
Summer Race Teams
Sail Sand Point offers a number of different race teams during the summer season. These groups are divided by skill/commitment level and boat type. There are two general categories: “Travel” and “Development.” Travel teams are aimed at sailors with more experience who are interested in competing in the summer NWYRC regatta series (and beyond). These sailors are willing to travel to events and want to learn to race at a high level. Development teams are intended for sailors who are coming into the racing scene, from our summer camp programs or elsewhere. These teams focus on skill-building and offer some (but not as many) competitive opportunities. To view information about the summer development teams, click here.

During the Spring and Fall, SSP hosts a number of high school sailing teams from around our local community. This program provides coaching and support at regattas as high schoolers come together to practice, hone their sailing skills, and represent their schools in our high school sailing district (NWISA). This program is open to a wide range of skill levels and offers high school students a more independent experience of team-building and competition than they would find in a summer sailing program.

The Sand Point Opti Team, or S.P.O.T, is SSP’s year-round Opti racing program and targets our youngest racers. SPOT sailors are interested in learning more about racing and want to sail competitively in Opti regattas over the summer (SPOT does continue through the summer – see Summer Race Team page).
