Sand Point Opti Team

Spring, Summer, and Fall Ages 9-14

The Sand Point Opti Team is aimed at sailors who wish to hone their racing skills in one of the most dominant one design race boats in the world. Racing is primarily during the Summer months, with the shoulder Fall and Spring seasons used to continue to develop racing skills in both the Optimist and a variety of other boats.

The S.P.O.T. team is divided into two groups based loosely on ability level and experience. Practices are held for three hours twice a week on Tuesdays and Thursdays for the Advanced Opti Team, and Mondays and Wednesdays for the Development Opti Team. Fall practices will start at 4:00pm. Spring season is March through mid June, Summer season is late June through early September, and Fall season is mid September through mid November. If you have questions about the Opti team, please email Head Coach of Racing Alec Wade (
