JOIN A TRAVELING TEAM
The Beaufort Youth Race Team is competitive and fun
Facilitating high level racing is one of the main objectives of our sailing program. We combine an ‘in season’ 5 week intensive training and racing program in and around the low country area, while also continuing to race during the off season at selected top national junior events.
During the season, the team will attend SAYRA regattas with daily training by JSB race team coaches.
During the winter months (the ‘‘off season’’) our race team participates in many Optimist and Laser Regattas (South East Champs, Mid Winters, Orange Bowl, Valentines, US Opti Team Trials, etc.).
The Open Skiffs
Seven sailors (and their intrepid parents) — the biggest Beaufort team in years — loaded up their O’Pen Skiffs and Lasers and headed to the 66th Annual Augusta Sailing Club Halloween Regatta last weekend.
“Even a forecast of rain and 30-knot gusts couldn’t deter these young athletes from traveling for a weekend of sailing, camping, and catching up with friends from other clubs,” Coach Chris Duer said.
