Opti Spring and Fall Program

Severn Sailing Association is pleased to announce our Spring and Fall 2017 Optimist training program. SSA has been a leader in one-design sailing since 1954, and we are eager to develop young sailors, so that they may enjoy our great sport for a lifetime.


There will be a 9 week Opti Spring and Fall Season with practice every Sunday (unless there is a regatta) from 10am to 4pm, and every Tuesday from 3:30pm, to 6:30pm for RWB. In the Spring, there is a 6 week Green Fleet program with training sessions every Sunday from 10am to 4pm.  


Bad weather weekday training sessions will be utilized through the use of video analysis, fitness training, theory talks, boat set-up and sailor evaluations. Sunday sailing sessions with high wind speeds will be cancelled ahead of time.

SSA Racing

Most weekends--and many weeknights--around the year, there's some sort of one-design racing happening out of Severn Sailing Association. Check out the calendar to see what's going on these days!

SSA Junior Program

SSA runs a year-round program to develop skills and a lifelong love of sailing in our younger sailors. A summer program and fall and spring high school sailing programs are just the tip of the iceberg.
