We have tailored our fleet of Club-owned boats with an eye on the future.  Our diverse fleet offers varied opportunities, thrills and challenges for our students as they grow.  There are many choices of fleet boats and we have chosen to build our fleet with the types of boats to keep them engaged in sailing while providing pathways to boat tradtional and not-so-traditional future sailing disciplines.

The Centerboard Sabot Pram

This is the workhorse of our program and is a legend the history of Southern California sailing.  A generous sail plan makes it responsive in light air.  Perfect for Marina del Rey!  These boats are easy to learn in but also feature advanced sail trim controls.  We have about seventeen of these from multiple builders.

The Optimist Pram

The Optimist (Opti) is the most popular junior boat in the world.  As such, many local and regional regattas are sailed in these boats.  A smaller sail plan makes these boats suitable for high winds and sailing in the open ocean.  We currently have ten almost new boats reserved for racing along with six custom built wood beauties and three additional fiberglass hulls for general instruction and practice.

The RS Tera

New to our fleet in 2019 are our nine RS Teras.  This is a versatile, nine foot boat suitable for both beginners learning to sail and experienced students wanting an adventure on the open ocean.  They feature a modern design, a self bailing cockpit, durable construction and two sizes of sails.  These boats have gained a foothold in Southern California programs similar to ours and have introduced a regatta circuit in venues including Marina del Rey, Westlake Village, Oceanside, Newport Beach and Dana Point.

The Nikki Foiling Craft

These boats change the game of youth sailing.  At nine feet long, weighing only 45lbs and carrying a huge sail, these boats plane in displacement mode and fly above the water in foiling mode.  These wickedly fun and challenging boats bring the excitement of foiling to sailors 55 to 150lbs while dramatically improving coordination, steering and trimming skills.

The RS Feva

In early 2020 we purchased a RS Feva.  This is a twelve foot, two person sport boat with an asymmetrical spinnaker and a modern design that will plane on a reach.  Skipper and crew learn to carefully coordinate their efforts as they develop the skills to make this miniature sport boat sail to it's potential.  It's an exciting way to enjoy two person sailing, is a step-up boat to 29er sailing and is a key trainer for foiling.

The Laser (ILCA Dinghy)

The Laser is the largest one design class in the world.  It is a highly responsive one person boat which develops athletic skills and provides plenty of excitement while doing so.  We currently have four hulls with 4.7, Radial and Full rigs and sails which allows us to start our students at an early stage.

The Club FJ

The Club FJ (CFJ) is one of the most popular two-person teaching and racing boats in high school and college sailing in the country and particularly so on the West Coast.  We have four available for our students.

The Club 420

The Club 420 is one of the most popular boats in Collegiate and competitive Junior racing.  It is similar to the CFJ but is slightly longer with a flatter hull that planes on a reach and features a trapeze for the crew.  We have two available for students who have demonstrated a high level of proficiency flying the spinnaker and responsibility on the CFJs.

The 29er

The 29er is a very light two person skiff with a lot of sail area!  It is a smaller version of the Olympic class 49er and 49FX and provides our advanced sailors with the thrill of high speed skiff sailing.  Teamwork is critical as the crew lays out on the trapeze while the skipper concentrates on driving a precise course.

The Santana 20

We have two Santana 20 keelboats which feature all of the sail controls of larger racing keelboats.  It's a classic IOR design with many ways to adjust settings to maximize performance. We sail them in casual race events and scheduled open sails and cruises.
