Our Fleet

We have tailored our fleet of Club-owned boats to provide every opportunity possible for our students as they grow.  There are many choices of fleet boats, we have chosen to build our fleet with the ones most prevalent in Southern California.

The Centerboard Sabot Pram

This is the workhorse of our program.  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 fifteen of these from two different builders.

The Optimist Pram

The Optimist (Opti) is the most popular junior boat in the world.  As such, more and more local 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 two almost new Club rigged boats, which are available for primarily for regatta use, a custom built wood beauty and two additional fiberglass boats for general instruction.

The Laser

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 two "full rig" Lasers in rotation with a "radial" being put together.

The Club FJ

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