Detroit Advanced Racing Team (DART) is a mentoring and athletic training program designed for select young DRYA Opti sailors (Ages 8-15) who demonstrate elite level racing skills and potential. DART gives motivated DRYA sailors an opportunity to participate in a higher level of training and develop their expertise through competition in local, regional, and national level events.
DART Sailing, in coordination with Crescent Sail Yacht Club, is hosting a new Team Racing Seminar on May 22nd! The seminar will feature DART Sailing Head Coach, Roger Williams University Hawk, and Windy City Team Race Champion, Connor Corgard and will focus on the rules and tactics of high school team racing.
All area high school sailors are welcome and are encouraged to come! Meet in the CSYC Junior Sailing Building at 4:30 PM Friday the 22nd for some team racing fun!
Summer Team DART Tryouts will be held on May 23rd, 2015. They will be held at the Grosse Pointe Yacht Club at 12 noon and run until 4 PM.
All prospective DART athletes will need to submit a sailing resume to Coach Connor via email before trying out. Additionally, all sailors must come with a parent to sign the appropriate liability forms and waivers.
Resumes should include: Name, Age, Fleet, recent sailing events & results (from the past one or two summers), why you want to sail on DART.
DART Sailors Blake Stackpoole, Charlie Ramsdell, Michael Kirkman, and Zach Rockwell braved the competition the past four days in Biscayne Bay, Florida. After qualifying to compete in a fleet of the top 220 sailors in the country, these athletes represented DART Sailing well at this prestigious event. Way to go!
