    VENICE HIGH SCHOOL SAILING TEAM

    1.    The Venice High Sailing Team is a club sport with all practices located at VYBA.  Regattas are governed by South Atlantic Interscholastic Sailing Association (SAISA). The team consists of a JV team (8th graders and homeschool can participate on JV) and a Varsity team. 

    2.    SAISA has scheduled four Points Regattas to begin in 2021.  VYBA will compete in spring points regattas as designated by SAISA.

    3.    Team membership and the regatta attendance requirement does not guarantee that every sailor will sail at a regatta as that depends on the rotation of sailors at the regatta as well as weather conditions which determine the number of races that may be conducted at those regattas.

    4.    The fee includes one VHS uniform race shirt per sailor.  Additional gear (buffs, sweatshirts, etc) will be available for purchase.

    5.    The fee excludes participation in the VYBA’s School Year C420 Racing Team program or other VYBA-sponsored events for the C420 Racing Team Program.

    6.    The team will practice one day per week after school

    7.  Regatta attendance requires adult parents as chaperones at the regatta and during overnight hotel stays as may be required for certain regattas, particularly those on the east coast of Florida.
