High School Sailing
Our Boothbay Region Sailing Club is open to middle and high school sailors who want to race.
The Spring season starts in March because, weather permitting, the spring regatta season starts in late March/early April. The Fall season begins around Labor Day and stretches into October.
Our ten-week long program in Spring and Fall makes us one of the longer sailing and more competitive programs around, and we welcome both novice and experienced sailors to join the Club. We race primarily in C420s, and provide opportunities to sail in tech dinghys, J/22s, and Optis as well. We are one of the few teams that will race both JV and Varsity on the same weekend to give our sailors every opportunity to improve in competition.
The Boothbay Region Sailing Club includes students from around the Boothbay Region with students from Lincoln Academy, Center for Teaching and Learning, Boothbay Region Middle School and Boothbay Region High School, and home schooled sailors. Sailors from other schools are welcome.
We compete in the Pen-Bay League and NESSA (New England Scholastic Sailing Association) events, and will travel to enhance our skills. Most events are at SailMaine in Portland, Rockland Community Sailing, Maine Maritime Academy in Castine, MDI Community Sailing in Southwest Harbor, and our home - Boothbay Harbor Yacht Club.
The program has 12 drysuits for when the combined water and air temperature is below 100F.
The program meets from 3:30-6:15 Monday-Thursday (after school), and races on weekend days.
