Shelby Race Team

This is a selective group of sailors who travels the Treasure Coast competing in the Opti. The fleet of six state-of-the-art fiberglass boats was donated in memory of longtime YSF supporter David Shelby, and a seasonal fee is charged for use of the boat and more comprehensive instruction. At the racing level, sailors learn the finer details of Opti sailing and are working towards mastering their boat handling skills in all wind conditions. They are taught rules, strategies, tactics, and are expected to travel as a team to local regattas. Team Handbook Spring 2020

Shelby Race Team practice 4 days a week and involve a nominal fee. Scholarships are available.
