What is High School Sailing?

In high school, most of the boats used are called 420s. These are 14 feet long and have a main and jib sail. 420s are sailed by 2 person crews. Sailing is a sport that where women and men can compete on an even playing field.


    In fleet racing, the boats all start at the same time (to a series of sound signals), and sail a designated course. Typically races last about 15 minutes each and can have many races in each division.


    High school sailing and scrimmages are hosted by BCSB on BYSC’s property every fall and spring. Our Fall season runs end of August to mid-November and picks up for Spring in February.


Racing takes place at Regattas (a regatta is a series of races). Regattas are generally held on the weekends during the season in Fall and Spring. Away regattas can be as far south as Brunswick, GA or as far north as Charlotte, NC. We belong to the South Atlantic Interscholastic Association (SAISA) as do many other high schools around the region. Our district is subdivided into North and South in order to ease travel requirements for the many teams we have in Florida.
