An X boat is a 16-foot sailboat sailed by a skipper and a crew.  This class is for the 11 - 16 year old sailor who is interested in learning to sail a two person boat.  Prior sailing experience is not necessary, as sailors will learn the basics of boat handling.  Once a comfort level is achieved, sailors will be introduced to racing. 

A limited number of X boats are available to rent on a first-come, first-served basis.  If you are interested in renting a boat, or you are interested in X boats, but don’t have a partner to sail with, please contact us at  We often have skippers looking for crew.

X Boat sailors interested in racing beyond class time are invited to join the North Lake Yacht Club as junior members and participate in Wednesday night, Saturday morning, and Sunday morning X Boat races.   Email if you'd like more information.
