It all started with one optimist in Nahant in April 2008. Quickly we ended up with 6 opti's at the end of the summer. By the end of 2009 we had 10 privately owned optis and another 10 in the NSP!
We will be storing shared information, action items and files here for those that are involved in building up a kids friendly sailing program with the Nahant Sailing Program (NSP) and the Nahant Dory Club (NDC).
Check out the calendar below for planned activities.
 
Plans currently include:
- building up an optimist fleet, by
   - individual families buying their own optimists
   - the NSP buying boats for general use
 
- setting up an infrastructure that
  - attracts more dinghy sailors,
  - makes the logistics around dinghy sailing a lot simpler
 
by
  - providing storage for the sailing gear (sail, centerboards, rudders etc)
  - providing racks for the boats (opti's, lasers).
 
 
In addition to the opti fleet, we are planning to partner with the Swampscott High School (where the racing team had their first sign ups in November '08) and the Swampscott Yacht Club (SYC) to support competitive 420 racing in the long term. To set up such a program, we need 6 420's that are in good racing condition.
First contacts with the SYC have been initiated and very well received. We are now planning to get the 2010 spring training off the ground by providing the necessary NSP equipment.
