Descriptions

  • Bronze Sabot (Ages 8 to 12)
    • Bronze Sabot (ages 8 to 12) is a learn to sail class for young sailors with little to no experience in sailing. Sailors learn in the Naples Sabot, a single-handed dinghy. Bronze class offers the opportunity to learn fundamental sailing skills in a fun and challenging environment. The curriculum covers fundamental safety, sailing skills, boat parts, terminology, knots and rigging. The environment is kept fun, light and above all-safe.

  • Silver Sabot ( Ages 8 to 12)
    • Silver Sabot (ages 8 to 12) is for sailors with at an intermediate level. Sailors eligible to enroll have successfully completed the Bronze level. This class blends sailing skills with several important seamanship skills including boat handling, safety position and upwind sailing.

  • Gold Sabot (Ages 8 to 18)
    • Gold Sabot (ages 8 to 18) is for advanced Sabot sailors. It is the third step in the CYC Sabot Certification process. Curriculum focuses on refining the skills learned in both Bronze and Silver, while introducing fundamental race skills and knowledge.

  • Sabot Squad
    • Sabot Squad is for sailors who have completed Gold Sabot. It is going to be a fun way to kids to try racing. Each day we will have a theme skill. Each class will end with 3 races, 1 “buoy,” 1 “distance” and 1 “crazy.” Those races will be scored as a 27 race series (9 classes/3 races). We will put our skills to use at an “away” regatta on November 1 & 2 Mission Bay Yacht Club. Afterwards, we’ll have a Squad Party and award all class participants.

  • Junior Advanced Laser (Ages 11 and Up)
    • Lasers and Laser Radials are very fast, fun and popular boats. They are excellent for sailors who have mastered the sabot and are looking for a new challenge. Sailors must be at least 11 years of age or have permission from the Head Coach and Junior Director to enroll. The skills learned aboard the Laser can be used on any boat. Lasers can be quite physical to sail. This class will focus on learning boat control through sail trim and body positioning.

  • Bronze Doublehanded (Ages 11 and Up)
    • The class is appropriate for novices through advanced sailors. It is an ideal class for sailors who are interested in sailing year-round at the high school level. The curriculum includes specialized crewing and skippering techniques and teaching “tricks” about the FJ. Sailors will also have time in the 420.

  • Silver Doublehanded (Ages 12 and Up)
    • Silver Doublehanded (ages 12 and up) is open to sailors who have taken Bronze Doublehanded or with Jr. Director permission. The class will cover topics including safety on the trapeze, how to rig and sail a spinnaker, body positioning and advanced terminology. Sailors will sail both 420s and FJs.

  • Sunday Intensive Teams
    • The Sunday Sail Series was created to promote both introductory racing and build team camaraderie between our different classes. The series of every other Sunday will end with the option for kids to race in their first regatta at Mission Bay Yacht Club in any of the three events they offer October 24, 25 or November 7 & 8.

  • Spinnaker/Trapeze Advanced (Ages 12-18)
    • This is a low pressure class that focuses on learning the C420, sailing skills, flying the spinnaker, trapeze safety and skills and going fast. Some limited racing is included. Pre-requisite is Gold Sabot Certified and age 12. Experienced Sabot Squad Race Team sailors can join at age 11.

  • Wind Surfing Class (Ages 10 and up)
    • This class is exciting, physically challenging and great way to development a feel for balance and sail trim. Some sailing skill is recommended to join this class.

The marked success of the Coronado Yacht Club can be directly attributed to the principles upon which the Club is organized. The main reason for its existence is to work for the benefit of Coronado and to that end to develop Glorietta Bay as a yacht harbor, attract yachtsmen to the harbor and encourage yachting in San Diego Bay.
