From entry level to international competition the RS Tera makes sailing addictive - the perfect way to introduce youngsters & keep them hooked. It's simple to rig, is tough and easy to right.
The CFJ is a light, maneuverable boat at 13 feet long, 4 feet wide and weighing in around 220 lbs. Slightly shorter, narrower and lighter than the C420, the CFJ is designed to go upwind, fast. .
Safe for beginning sailors and quick enough to keep collegiate All-Americans interested, the Club 420 provides the most double handed racing of any boat in the world. The C420 enables young sailors to learn teamwork, trapeze, and spinnaker techniques that can’t be learned from a single-handed boat.

A signed liability waiver is required prior to camp. This will include for participation in camp, as well as adherence to any COVID-19 procedures that might be in place.
All sailors will be required to pass a swim check on the first day of camp. The check consists of jumping off the DWYC guest dock, treading water, retrieving and donning a Coast Guard Approved life jacket while in the water. This is not very difficult and there are instructors always there, so please don't stress.
Camp consists of both classroom and on the water instruction, with games, races, etc.
Sample Daily Itinerary
Chalk Talks will be held outside. Kids will be out on the water within 1 hour each day.
Phones, iPods, iPads, Game Boys, etc. - any electronics or valuables that do not float or can be lost or stolen.
Much of the day is spent on the water; cellphones have a habit of falling overboard, so if one is needed, it will stay in their backpack on land.
Lunch will be held in numerous places around the harbor or at Dana West Yacht Club. This could include the grassy knoll across from the yacht club, a dock or even on the boats. Sailors should bring their lunch Monday - Thursday, but will be provided on Fridays. Plenty of bottled water is always available, however, please bring a reusable water bottle.
In 2020, we successfully implemented stringent COVID procedures. In 2021, if needed, we will follow procedures as outlined by the CDC, State of California and Orange County officials.
