Coach: Sean Harr
EYC is proud to announce our high school sailing program for 2016-2017 school year with Indian Creek School. High School sailing closely parallels the collegiate sailing format. Our program will focus on both fleet racing and team racing. Indian Creek School (ICS) will train at the Eastport Yacht Club (EYC) under the direction of the Junior Fleet as part of the Central League of the Mid-Atlantic Scholastic Sailing Association (MASSA) District.
ICS will participate in a number of regattas throughout the seasons which run from September to November and March to May. The end of each season culminates in a District Championship and in the Spring, for those teams that qualify, the National Fleet Racing Championship (Mallory Cup) and National Team Racing Championship (Baker Cup).
In addition to daily coaching at practices, EYC will rotate coaching duties with ICS for weekend regattas. Junior Varsity teams typically travel to local events lasting one day. Varsity teams attend local events and travel to venues requiring overnight stays several times a season. Organization of all local and overnight trips is the responsibility of ICS, team captains, and parents.
