HORIZON PROGRAM
"Your greatness is measured by your horizons." - Michelangelo

Mission

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

MICRO-CLINICS - 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.

FUTURE PATHWAYS - Youth sailors and parents will also become more familiar with the process to qualify for our Development Team, US International Teams, US National Team, and beyond.

TOP TRAINING FROM THE HIGHEST COACHES IN THE OPTIMIST FLEET - Highest level coaches from the Optimist fleet, working with everyone from the National Team to the Horizon program.
