SABOT RACE TEAM PRACTICE - Tuesdays & or Fridays!

(Please contact Jr. Director if you intend to participate in our race team practices)

With a full race calendar in the Southern California area, we encourage this group to participate as much as possible. In addition to after school practices there are clinics and group activities as well as coaching. Focus is on maintaining competitive sailing skills and developing regatta performance. Sportsmanship is emphasized. All skill levels are encouraged to participate.

NON RACING SAILORS - Wednesdays & or Fridays

We want to encourage those non-racing sailors to continue their sailing throughout the year. Come down for our after school program and get out on the water with friends. Both Sabots and Open Skiffs will be available.

DOUBLEHANDED RACING (Mondays & or Wednesdays)

Focus will be in improving competitive sailing skills and regatta performance. Sportsmanship will be emphasized. Practices will be held after school on Fridays. Emphasis will be on boat handling, fleet and team racing, as well as participation in traveling regattas and clinics.

FISHING - Fridays

Aside from our after school program, SWYC Anglers have a tournament calendar that is open to juniors for participation. Awards are given for individual tournaments and at the end of the year. Juniors should contact the Junior Director if they wish to participate in a tournament.


SWYC currently hosts Torrey Pines High School Sailing Team. Many high schools in the area have students interested in competitive sailing. See the Director about joining or starting a team. Established teams are encouraged to make arrangements in advance to ensure boats are available for practices.
