Team BYC's ILCA Program is a race focused High Performance program working toward national and international regattas. Sailors move around SoCal and USA to train in a range of condition and events. Our ILCA team is one of the fastest growing teams in the USA. This program is working toward sailors gaining selection to the World Sailing and Class World Championships. Sailors need their own boat to participate in this program.

The information on this page is for Team BYC. For information on Learn to Sail and Social sailing programs that are running visit the Spring, Fall and Summer program pages. 

Out of SoCal Regattas

On top of our program our ILCA team has the opportunity to race in regattas around USA and Internationally. These regattas come at an additional cost to the program fees. We have a funding scheme through Team BYC so all sailors representing the team will have standardized coaching fees per day.

Extra sessions

When we see good breeze on the forecast we will try to add extra sessions. These normally occur in the winter between November and March. They normally come with short notice. They are added to the app so you can RSVP. We use these sessions to target big breeze, big waves, or offshore shifty winds. Sailors that are 'All In' can join these sessions at no extra cost. Sessions are open to all ocean classes.
