Sea Sprite Racing at BYC

Sea Sprite Racing at Bristol Yacht Club is fun, active, competitive, and easy. The skippers, crews, and families love the boat. It is roomy and stable and safe for a family to race, yet still moves smoothly and points to windward beautifully. It is easily sailed with just 2 people as well.
