NSB Competitive Youth Sailing Teams

NSB Competitive Youth Sailing Teams 


The Youth Sailing Teams at NSB are designed for 7- to 18-year-olds who are keen to race small boats against other yacht clubs and community junior programs.  Team members need to have successfully passed the NSB Level 2 Sailing, or have similar experience.

The teams primarily race RS Teras for our younger sailors and CFJs and Lasers for our older sailors.

The team plans to attend one race per month, primarily in Orange County or Long Beach, but may also organize trips all the way to San Diego and up to Santa Barbara.
