For children and teenagers like this in the pictures below, keen to advance their sailing skills further and improve their seamanship in diverse conditions and environments, we offer the possibility of joining two junior race teams. This program develops qualities and life skills valuable to a young athlete: teamwork, sportsmanship, fitness, organization, confidence, respect and independence. The Royal St. Lawrence Yacht Club has Quebec's best and longest record of training top Canadian sailors.
Laser Race Team
Optimist Race Team
Optimist Development Team
The Club racing team will concentrate almost exclusively on advanced boat handling and racing techniques. Participants, with their own boats, will be intensively coached in a program that prepares the sailors for competition at a provincial/national level. There will be a fair amount of traveling but the schedule will be established well in advance. An early response by April1st will help the coaches customize individual goal setting and regatta schedules for all sailors.
Opti Race Team
This option is for the advanced Opti sailor who has completed their CYA LTR program. We will limit the program to 8 students per session, in student-owned boats only. Students are encouraged to enter the program for the whole summer.
