Fall Regatta Prep and Intermediate racing skills classes are typically held on Saturday mornings during September & October to enhance our youth sailing program sailors’ racing skills. This class is by invitation to those children who have demonstrated good sailing skills and plan to compete in the Pirates of the Corinthian Regatta. The Youth Sailing Coach will help parents decide when a child is ready to enter a regatta and participate in these fall classes. The Classes are taught in Optimist class sailboats.  Fall 2022 Classes are September 17, 24, and Oct 8. We have seven Optimist sailboats at DCYC and thus class size and regatta participation using a DCYC supplied boat is limited to seven young sailors.


All of the youth sailors representing DCYC and using DCYC provided Optimist boats will have a crispy, fast, new sail for the Pirates regatta. 


The annual DCYC Pirates of the Corinthian Youth Regatta, sponsored by DCYC and under the auspices of the Texas Sailing Association is a major youth sailing event and wildly popular with the kids and parents and coaches.  The 2022 event is October 15-16, 2022.  Registration is via the Texas Sailing Association website.


The Optimist Green Fleet is a fine opportunity for sailors with proven sailing & boat handling skills to get some sailboat racing experience. The Red, White, or Blue Fleets are for age-specified experienced racers.
