Christopher and Lauren Sullivan (parents of an incoming 8th grade sailor) are looking to develop a Albany High School Sailing Team (Girls and Boys) through the Richmond Yacht Club (RYC) High School Sailing Program located in Point Richmond for sailors (no experience required) in grades 8-12 wanting to sharpen their sailing skills throughout the fall, winter, and spring. Participants in the program attend regular after school practices at RYC and several weekend regattas around the Bay Area and Southern California. The regatta's are run by the Pacific Interscholastic Sailing Association (PCISA). Please note, a potential Albany High Sailing School Team will be a club sport and will be self-funded by those families participating as there is no funding available through the AUSD.
For those interested in participating, please email Lauren Sullivan at firstname.lastname@example.org to be added to an interested list. They will hold an informational meeting with the RYC High School Coach on the evening of Monday, August 12th (time TBD) at the home of Chris and Lauren Sullivan in Albany.
If a student is interested however has no experience there are Summer Programs available at Richmond Yacht Club (RYC) including Beginning FJ's and 420's. Please visit www.richmondyc.org/page/13823~814709/Junior-Program for summer schedule.
