About CERT

CERT stands for Coastal Elite Racing Team. Originally started by Clay Johnson, the CERT team has provided advanced coaching for New Jersey and the Mid Atlantic region. CERT sailors have won the US Team Trials, US Nationals, Team Racing Championships, and represented Team USA on many occasions. 


Pre Requisites

The Cert Team is an advanced racing program for individuals looking to hone their racing skills and train against other competitive sailors. 

Usually, sailors come from summer advanced racing programs looking to sail beyond the summer months. CERT sailors receive the highest quality of coaching all year round and have the opportunity to maximize their days on the water.

We require all sailors to own their boat and equipment. However, the CERT community is large and welcoming to all new sailors and If you are looking for a used boat, there are many experienced families willing to help you get started.
