High School Racing

The spring season begins mid-February and runs to mid-May. Fall season is September through October. Sponsored by the Northwest Interscholastic Sailing Association, this program is open to kids in 8th grade or above and is low cost. The Corinthian Yacht Club supports the Ballard High School Race Team, and a mixed team made up of kids from other high schools and 8th grade.

The teams race on Flying Juniors (FJs) which are double-handed boats. New members are always welcome. Contact us at juniors@cycseattle.org if you are interested in participating in the High School Race season.

Lots has been going on with CYC High School Sailing in 2019. Over fifteen sailors practice regularly each week from several different schools. Recent News:

  • Go Girls! On September 21 and 22, CYC’s high school team sent 4 sailors to the NWISA San Diego Girls Invitational Qualifier, hosted by Olympia Yacht Club. Sailors Catie Vandervort, Caroline Lochner, Meimei Johnson (Ballard HS) and Isabelle McNabb (King’s HS) made an impressive showing, placing 2nd overall. Well done girls!
  • On September 28th, CYC hosted the NWISA Keelboat Qualifier. Eight teams competed and the Ballard High team tied for third. They enjoyed the opportunity to sail on J/80s in some moderate winds.
  • Also on September 28th, Sail Sandpoint hosted a Fleet race skirmish. CYC team members from Ballard and Lincoln participated in this fun regatta.
  • On October 4th and 5th, CYC hosted the NWISA Singlehanded Championship  in conjunction with PSSC Small Boats. In the Radial Fleet Division, CYC sailors Erik Anderson placed 3rd, Catie Vandervort placed 5th, and Isabelle McNabb placed 6th. Congratulations!!  Saturday's light wind and current made it a tough day of sailing, luckily there was more wind on Sunday.
