Juniors News

DRYC is proud to now have a fleet of new Opti's! We introduced these into our Spring Program 2013, along with new Opti classes in the summer program starting with the Intermediate sailors up to the advanced racing classes.



We are pleased to have Sean Dougherty as our Head Coach for the Junior Sailing Program. Sean enjoys working with kids in a fun and competitive environment, and strives to continue the tradition of excellence that has led the Del Rey Yacht Club Junior Sailing Program to become one of the premier sailing programs in the nation.



Congratulations to DRYC Junior Racers Chris Weis, Roberto Stevens, Dylan Finestone and Sidney Gathrid! This team traveled to Sydney, Australia for the Hardy Cup hosted by the Royal Sydney Yacht Squadron. Our team enjoyed sailing against the international teams and learned the tactics associated with using asymmetric spinnakers in match racing. They were happy to win second place after fighting hard in each of the 34 races over the week and only losing a handful of those racess; click here for the team's letter.
