Opti Green Fleet

Sailors who have demonstrated the motivation and skill to get to this level begin to practice with the Shelby Race Team, thereby gaining exposure to more challenging conditions and more accomplished sailors. They are introduced to racing skills and concepts and are taught to sail fast. Skills learned at this level include pointing the boat upwind, holding the boat on a line, acceleration, and buoy rounding. Opti Green Fleet sailors are encouraged to compete, but are not required to do so.

Opti Green Fleet practice 2 days a week and involve a nominal fee. Scholarships are available.
