 Welcome to the Lake Norman Yacht Club

Junior Program Page

2014 is going to be a great year for the Lake Norman Yacht Club Junior Program!

A Beginning Opti Race clinic with Coach Tom Colman was held on  May 17-18. The kids (and their parents!) had a great time and learned a lot. All Opti parents should plan on attending the "How To Be an Opti Parent" talk at Sail Camp.  

The summer 2014 sailing season is jam-packed with excellent opportunities for our Junior Program members, including Sail Camp as well as other training opportunities, Junior Series races and club regattas, the SAYRA junior series, and other regional events.

Excellent opportunities for older Juniors that are coming up include the US Sailing Small Boat Instructor Training Levels 1, 2 and 3 are coming up on May 23-26.  There are still spots available in the Levels 2 and 3 courses.  The US Sailing Sears/ Bemis/ Smythe Area D Qualifier is being hosted by LNYC on June 6-8.  Some of these events may be cancelled if we do not have sufficient participation.  Please register ASAP to take advantage of these opportunities.

The annual LNYC Hospice Regatta will be held May 31- June 1.  Hospice is a fun regatta for a very worthwhile cause. See the Events Calendar to register.
Communications Directors Angie & Bill Wiggins are sending out a monthly e-newsletter to Junior and Youth members and their parents.

LNYC Junior Series

There are a few changes to the Junior Program Race Series this year for the Laser and 420 fleets.  While the sailors in these fleets have been very active over the past few years, many don't quality in either fleet because of switching between the fleets.  This year's schedule includes a couple of race days/ regattas that are designated as qualifiers for either Lasers or 420s.  To qualify to be scored for the series, you must (1) register as a member of the Junior Program and (2) sail at least 4 events in the same boat, with the same rig (Laser Full, Radial or 4.7), and in the same position (420 skipper or 420 crew).

SAYRA Junior Series

SAYRA is the South Atlantic Yacht Racing Association which is open to all sailing organizations in North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia.  SAYRA sponsors the SAYRA Junior Series from May of each year through November. The series includes approximately 10-12 regattas hosted by various yacht clubs in the region.  To qualify to be scored for the series, you must join as a SAYRA Jr member -- its free, you just have to provide your birthday, club and contact info. Green Fleet Opti sailors need to sail at least 3 regattas including at least one Fresh Water event and one Saltwater event. RWB Fleet Optis, Lasers and Sunfish must sail at least 4 regattas including at least one Fresh Water event and one Saltwater event.  420 sailors can qualify with just 2 regattas, including one Fresh Water and one Saltwater event.  Note that all the qualifying regattas must be sailed in the same fleet for Optis.  If your birthday falls during the series and you move up to the next fleet, you should "sail up" for the entire series.  Lasers need to sail with the same rig for qualifying regattas and 420 sailors should sail both regattas as either designated skipper or crew.
