What is HS Sailing?
High School sailing is the fastest growing segment of sailing in the United States. This can be attributed to its focus on the team aspect of sailing and widespread participation and organization. At Wayzata Sailing we coach heavily towards team building and make it our goal to make a place for every sailor that comes to us. Some schools have formed teams, however, school sponsorship is not required for participation in our program, and independents are always welcome. WS plays host to official teams from Wayzata, Benilde St. Margaret’s, Orono, Chanhassen, and Providence Academy.
Who can participate?
Sailing under the banner of your high school with a group of your peers forges friendships that will no doubt last a lifetime. In that regard we happily invite all individuals from beginners to advanced level sailors to come and participate in the Midwest Interscholastic Sailing Association (MISSA) with us. This course is for sailors in 6th-12th grade (12-18 years old).
Where are the races?
All sailors are urged to participate in local Minnesota School Sailing regattas, held on most Saturdays at various metro lakes throughout the season. For qualified sailors, participation in ladder events leading to Regional and National competition is encouraged and supported. Tuition fees cover training at the sailing center and coaching at regattas. Fees for MSS/MISSA registration, travel, and additional regattas are not included.
Do we need a boat?
420s are provided by us for practice, and by host clubs for regattas.
