Junior Program Summer Race Schedule
No matter what the level of sailor, the summer program provides opportunities for our junior sailors to participate in sailing races. For beginner to intermediate sailors, there are local races on the Shrewsbury and Navesink rivers. For advanced sailors who are on either the Opti or 420 race teams, there are many races beyond our local rivers.
SSYC Sunday Racing & Championship Series
Beginning at the end of April until October Sunday afternoon racing is scheduled at SSYC. All students enrolled in the Jr program, members and non-members are eligible and encouraged to participate in our Sunday program. Optimist races include Gold, Silver and Bronze fleets with designed to match children with similar abilities. Race day schedule can be found on the SSYC calendar on our website.
For decades, SSYC has been a co-host of the four-day Junior Sweeps race. The first two days are held at SSYC and the last two days are held at Monmouth Boat Club in Red Bank on the Navesink River. After spending weeks learning and honing sailing skills, ALL of our junior sailors are able to compete against similar level sailors. The JR Sweepstakes are the highlight of our Summer Program and all students in Beginners, Intermediates and our Race Teams are encouraged to participate. See the Jr Program home page for all information.
