420 Chesapeake Racers
420 Chesapeake Racers is our introductory two person racing group. This group competes in regattas hosted by clubs on the Chesapeake Bay, and in a select few travel regattas. The 420 Chesapeake Racers class is ideal for sailors who have some experience sailing a Club 420 and are ready to put their racing skills to the test. Sailors should be familiar with basic racing skills, points of sail, sail controls and parts of the boat, rigging and derigging, body position and posture of the skipper and crew. Parents are expected to volunteer time to drive to various events. Parents will be expected to self-organize for many of the team’s logistics such as the towing of trailers. Coaches are present for all regattas to help sailors both on and off the water. Please contact the SSA Junior Program Director for a provisional list of events. SSA’s club owned 420’s will be used, but sailors are encouraged to bring their own Club 420. Classes will focus on refining boat handling and practicing other skills needed to become proficient racers, including:
