About Our X Boat Fleet

The X Boat is a two person youth boat and the most actively raced in the Midwest.  It is stable and forgiving which allows youth sailors to hone their sailing and racing skills.  It is supported by many local yacht clubs which provide regatta opportunities.

Club sponsored races are held weekly from Memorial Day through Labor Day, with a few exceptions, on Sunday mornings at 10:00 and Tuesday evenings at 6:30.  

On Sundays a post race a lunch is provided by the X Boat parents on a rotating basis.  The Waters is open on   Tuesday evenings, to OYC members, providing an opportunity to relax, eat and enjoy a view of the X Boat race.  

Sailors participate in a coached sailing school twice a week for six weeks and are encouraged to attend off lake regattas.  The largest regatta has over 100 boats in attendance.  

All X Boat sailors own their own boats and provide their own crew.  Our X Boat sailors are products of our high performance Opti sailing school.
