The Boats
While it is desirable to own a boat for your child to train in, it is not required. The club does not provide boats but there are usually vacancies for crew.

These one design boats are widely raced by juniors in the Mass Bay area: 

N10 (Turnabout) & Duplin 
Ten feet long, made of wood or fiberglass, cat rigged, spinnaker, sailed by a skipper and one crew member  

Optimist Dingy 
Eight feet long, fiberglass, sprit rigged, sailed by skipper alone, largest and fastest growing one-design fleet in the area and world. The SYC Opti fleet has grown to 21 boats.  

Laser & Laser Radial 
About 13 feet long, fiberglass, high performance cat rigged, Radial has the same hull but smaller rig, sailed by skipper alone.

Club 420 
About 14 feet long, fiberglass, high performance, high tech, sloop rigged, spinnaker, sailed by skipper and one crew member. We will be glad to assist you in determining which fleet would best suit your son or daughter.
