2013/2014 School Year Programs

 

Our school year program consists of Saturday sailing practices with the added option to sail one day during the week for addtional racing practices. Fleets include Opti Green fleet for first year sailors, Opti RWB fleet for more experienced sailors, Laser Fleet , and 420 High School Racing and 420 Club racing.

 

Our sailors travel around the state comepeting in regattas and learn how to sail, race, and have fun on the water. The skills learned in our program last a lifetime. Sailors that learned to sail at VYBA have gone on to sail for nationally and internationally ranked teams and one of our former sailors is currently pursuing an Olympic Campaign. At VYBA you can expect big things from a small program.

 

Our philosophy is, "Right Side up. On the water, and in life."
