Laser Sailing

Laser sailboats are slightly smaller than 420s. They only have one sail and one sailor aboard. DIYSF provides coaching for practices and selected Laser events. Laser sailors have both youth events and open events to choose from. DIYC also has a growing open Laser fleet, and DIYSF Laser youth sailors are invited to participate.

DIYSF Laser sailors are required to furnish their own boats. The program does not provide Lasers and Laser equipment. Full DIYSF membership is required. Practices are generally held on weekends, 10-4 on Saturday and 1-5 on Sunday, as set by the coaches.

Sailing and College Admissions

Sailing can help you get into the college of your choice. Today colleges are looking for students who are academically qualified and who have demonstrated a passion for something and followed through on it over time. Sailing can be that passion. Being a great sailor is no substitute for academic achievement. However being an accomplished sailor can help set you apart from the crowd. Some college coaches have some influence in the admissions process and will "pull for you" for you in the admissions process if they want you on their team.

Fees for the high school sailing team are approximately $250 in membership dues and maintenance fees and $165 in monthly asset and coaching fees.
