Development Days

Small Boat Tuesdays is sponsored by our small boat education coaches who enjoy helping new laser and sunfish sailors build confidence after attending the small boat Intro to Sailing Class.  The format for Tuesdays is supervised casual sailing.  Depending on interest, a small race course may be set up. 

Flying Scot Wednesdays and Thistle Thursdays is sponsored by Flying Scot Fleet #135 and Thistle Fleet #66.  Newer sailors who have taken a class or lessons are matched with experienced sailors for maximum learning and maximum fun.  Both fleets offer free crew training and placement.  The format for Wednesdays and Thursdays is very casual racing on a short course followed by snacks and beverages.
