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 types of boats 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 over fifteen of these from multiple 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 three almost new boats for racing, three custom built wood beauties and three additional fiberglass hulls for general instruction and practice.

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 three practice hulls and one race hull with 4.7, Radial and Full rigs and sails.

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 four available for our students.

 

The Santana 20

 

New to us for 2017, the Santana 20 is a small keelboat with all the features of larger racing keelboats.  It's a classic IOR design with many ways to adjust settings to maximize performance. We sail it in casual race events and occasional special practice sessions.
