For summer 2020 we have leased 6 RS Fevas to be used in our JR Programs. Feva sailing will be incorporated into many of our classes and there will be a new Doublehanded-Intro class in Fevas in the mornings.  RS Fevas are the fastest growing double handed dinghy worldwide and are taking off as training boats in our area! The boats are targeted at tweens/teens that are too small for a 420s and for racing sailors looking to broaden their skills and try out a modern style, fast dingy with an asymmetrical cute.  The boats are also a big hit with Opti sailors who want to sail with a friend.  Racing and recreational sailors all love Fevas.  Learn more at RS Feva website.
