Naples Sabot - www.naples-sabot.org

The Naples Sabot is the standard junior training boat in the Southern California area. Many world-class sailors started in the Sabot. The Sabot provides a stable, simple, yet capable boat for new and young sailors. Used boats to purchase are available at low cost and they hold their value very well. The International Naples Sabot Class Association (INSA) is the one-design association for the Naples Sabot. It is responsible for the administration of the class, and sanctions the National Championship Regatta. INSA membership is suggested for all Sabot sailors and required for all Sabot racers. INSA membership is $15 annually per skipper. Applications are available in the Junior Office. A $6 late fee will apply to renewals after March 31. Completed applications should be forwarded directly to the INSA secretary.

Laser & Laser Radial - www.laser.org

The Laser and Laser Radial represent the next step for single-handed sailors who are outgrowing the Sabot. With the inclusion in the Summer Olympics, the full rig Laser (male) and radial (female) has solidified its already strong position as one of the most competitive fleets in the world. On a more local level, the Laser benefits from its fast, economical, competitive, and fun racing. The boat places added emphasis on the physical side of the sport in addition to the common strategic and tactical elements. The Radial rig differs from the full rig because of a shorter mast and slightly smaller sail that accommodates lighter sailors. Recommended sailing weight for Laser Radials is 100 – 150 pounds. Those above 150 pounds are best suited for full rig Lasers.

The International Laser Class Association (ILCA) is the one-design class association for all Laser activities. The ILCA is responsible for the administration of the class rules, registration of boats and sanctions all the national championship regattas. All Laser skipper’s who race must be a member of the class association. As a member, you will receive direct regatta mailing, The Laser Sailor newsletter, stickers and decals, and an official class rulebook. Fees should be sent directly to:

420 - www.club420.org

The 420 dinghy is very similar to an FJ. The primary difference is the "trapeze" wire that allows the crew to stand out on the side of the boat to help balance it. The 420 is the primary double-handed boat for youth events nationally and worldwide.

FJ (Flying Junior) - www.cfjclass.org

The Flying Junior is very similar to the 420. CYC offers only a couple of FJ classes and does not send coaches to FJ regattas, instead focusing on the 420. High School Sailing and Collegiate Sailing both use the FJ without the spinnaker. The CFJ Class Association is the one-design class association for the Flying Junior (FJ). FJ Class membership is required of at least one member of each two person FJ team. Fees are $15 and should be sent directly to the class secretary.
