C420 Racing

This is an advanced racing class focused on improving racing and boat-handling skills. Practices will consist of spinnaker and trapeze techniques, tactics, starting strategies, and boat speed. Regattas include JSA events and local championships. When opting for a two person boat, it is extremely important that the crews and skipper discuss what they expect to achieve over the summer and agree on their level of commitment.  Skippers and crew need to be aware of each other’s absences in advance and make appropriate plans.
