We offer regular support and coaching to enable our young sailors to progress from just sailing to competing in the sport. The main element of this programme is the monthly Cadet Coaching, usually the first Saturday of the month (but check the dates) , where our RYA Race Coaches lead training sessions which normally end with a brief race. We also send a team to the Thames Challenge team racing event and to the BYS Regional Championships in June.
To get involved, the first step will be for your sailor to go on the RYA Youth Sailing Stage 1 and 2 courses. These will ensure that they can sail proficiently around a triangular course in medium winds. They should then sail on a regular basis to consolidate their skills. If you are in any doubt or want further information please talk to any of the Club's race coaches.
In the past, every year has seen the coaching sessions being fully subscribed, so it essential to book in advance on the website. We also appreciate support at these sessions from parents. It helps us maximise our time on the water
