OPTI Dolly and Cover Orders due May 3rd

April 23, 2013


Dear Shelter Island Junior Sailing Program Opti Family;

We are delighted that your Opti sailor will be joining us for a great summer on Shelter Island. 

Please note that your Opti will not be stored on the rack system you may be familiar with from past seasons.  Instead, all boats (Opti I, Opti II, Opt III, and Opti ADV) must rest on a dolly in the yard.  The dolly is the responsibility of every Opti owner.  Also, because the boats will be stored in an upright position, a canvas top-cover is strongly recommended to keep equipment secure and minimize accumulation of water.  For travel regattas when boats will ride on the SIYC Trailer, top-covers are mandatory.

To facilitate this equipment requirement, we have secured a vendor who is willing to sell dollies and top-covers to you at a very competitive rate.  Please see the attached flyer for information. 

Please email Karen Panarella at programadministrator@siycjunior.com to be included in the bulk purchase.  If included in this order, equipment will be shipped to SIYC prior to the start of the season.

Orders must be received by May 3, 2013.

Thank you,


Janet Maurillo & Whitney McCarthy
