Level 1 Opti (formerly Opti Green)
This class sets the foundations of safety, seamanship, and sportsmanship. You must be at least 8 years old to take this class. Sailors begin by sailing with Instructors, then in pairs, and then alone, depending on comfort level. Variety, fun, and skill building are the core of the curriculum. Games, both on and off the water, and nomenclature are important parts of this class. To move out of Opti Level 1 the following year, a sailor must demonstrate to the Instructor sufficient comfort and proficiency in sailing alone.

Level 2 Opti (formerly Opti Blue)
Opti Level 2 sailors are learning to sail independently (alone). Building confidence by improving steering/sail control, surroundings recognition, and capsize recovery is the basis of this level. As completing this class represents a significant advancement in sailing level, sailors often spend two seasons in Opti Level 2.

Opti Green Fleet Racing (formerly Opti Yellow)
In this intermediate/advanced sailing class proper boat handling skills are emphasized including basic right-of-way rules, maneuverability, and sail trim for speed. This is the beginning racing class that will participate in Opti Green Fleet events within SMSA. Opti Green Fleet Racing is an important step for sailors as they develop the skills necessary for a secure comfort level in the boats and begin racing. A coach will travel with the team, but parents are expected to accompany their racers when traveling.

Level 1 Adventure Sailing (formerly Opti Red)
Level 1 Adventure is the advanced level, non-racing oriented class. Sailors who prefer the recreational or adventure side of sailing choose Level 1 Adventure. Proper sailing skills are emphasized during weekly sailing adventures and voyages. As with all of the Opti classes, variety, fun, and skill building are the core of the curriculum. Level 1 Adventure sailors generally remain for one season before moving on to 420-1. Adventure sailors will have the opportunity to sail a variety of boats including Optis, 420s and the Nomad as well as some of the larger cruising and racing boats in Marion.

As Laser participation has grown, the Junior Program is continuing to offer a formalized Laser class for sailors interested in continuing in a single-handed dingy. BYC has only 2 lasers so sailors who are interested in this class will need to provide their own boat.

This course is for beginning 420 sailors. The goal is for sailors to become confident and safe in the 420. Basic boat handling skills will be developed, as will skipper/crew relations, and sail trim. Other boats may be used to foster this group’s skills. Permission of Instructor or 110-pound weight minimum required.

Level 2 Adventure Sailing (formerly 420-2)
Level 2 Adventure is non-racing oriented class. This course is for intermediate 420 sailors. The goal is for sailors to become proficient in the handling of a 420, which entails an introduction to trapeze and spinnaker skills, refining sailing skills, and sail trim. Level 2 Adventure sailors may remain in this class for more than one season before moving on to 420 Green Race.

420 Green Race (formerly 420-3)
This course is for those 420 sailors who are ready to compete at the occasional regatta, but still have a need to further develop their skills prior to being selected for the Race Team. An experienced coach trains the sailors in racing tactics/strategies, boat-handling drills, tuning techniques, and the basics of racing. The goal is to continue sailing the 420s with racing in mind. Coaches will accompany racers to regattas. Parents are expected to help transport racers and equipment..
