More Camp information:

RCYC’s Youth Sailing Fleet

The Optimist is an eight-foot; kid sized single-handed dinghy that is easy to manage and fun to sail. The “Opti” is a great boat for juniors to begin sailing, and provides a great platform to learn racing.




The Laser is a dinghy for older youth sailors. It is a great platform to build boat-handling and racing skills. This boat has three different size sails, allowing us to tailor the boat to the weight of the sailor.



The 420 is an ideal entry-level training boat for all ages. This is a double-handed boat with main and jib. Advanced sailors can learn to rig the spinnaker and trapeze for an exhilarating thrill.  This is the primary boat used on the Texas Sailing Association’s Youth Circuit and in Collegiate Sailing.
