The mission of the Horizon Program is to help put eager sailors looking for further development on the right path to be higher-level Optimist racers by offering regionally-based practice opportunities with top Optimist coaches.

  • Weekend practices or micro-clinics will be scheduled in areas across the country that may not have access to high-level coaching to help educate and elevate youth sailors, parents, and sailing programs to the next level.
  • Youth sailors and parents will also become more familiar with the process to qualify for our ODP2 Program, US International Teams, US National Team, and beyond.
