The Southport Junior Yacht Club Sailing Foundation uses the following sailboats in its sailing classes:


Turnabouts:  A safe, stable trainer with a single mainsail and a small spinnaker.  Room for several beginners and an instructor make this an ideal entry level boat.  The Turnabouts are privately owned and shared with the program.


Optimist Dinghies (Optis):  A single-handed advanced dinghy for younger racers.  The Foundation owns two new Optis; most Opti sailors provide their own.


420s:  The universal US sailing double-handed training boat used by teenage and collegiate sailors.  The 420 is used in our Advanced Class. The Foundation owns fifteen 420s.

J/24:  The J/24 is the world's most popular one-design keelboat.  Wasi-Sabi introduces advanced program sailors to keelboat handling and racing, including related topics of crew coordination and additional aspects of seamanship.
