Upcoming Youth Racing Opportunities

Published 09:23 on 15 Jul 2022

There are lots of exciting opportunities coming up for our youth and junior sailors in the second half of 2022! It has been fantastic to see so many taking part in club racing, and travelling to events such as the British Youth Sailing Regional Junior Championships, Topper National Series, and local Open Meetings, with several also heading off the Topper Worlds at Lake Garda next week, before Topper Nationals a few weeks later!

Eric Twiname Youth and Junior Team Racing Championships

Last year 4 of our Topper sailors headed off to Oxford Sailing Club to compete in the Eric Twiname Junior Team Racing Championship in RS Fevas! We are looking to enter a team again at this year's event on 9th & 10th October, but with more preparation and training before hand!

To support our younger members in getting into Team Racing we will be running a series of afternoon coaching sessions which will be free of charge, with a maximum of 8 spaces on each. From those who take part in these sessions we will then select our team of 4 who head off to Oxford for the championship! As the Club will be providing free coaching prior to the event this year we are asking that the 4 selected sailors pay the entry fee for the event, which will be £45 each.

Three training dates are currently available to book, and an additional date will be added in September. These sessions can be booked now via the links below:

Youth Team Racing Training 30th July

Youth Team Racing Training 6th August

Youth Team Racing Training 27th August

Race Coaching Camp

Our annual Race Coaching Camp is running from Monday 8th August to Friday 12th August! This is a great week of coaching for our younger sailors for just £200 if they have their own boat! With several events coming up such as our Optimist Open (see more details below) and Parkstone Youth Week this is a great chance for a fun week of training and practice!

Book Race Camp Here!

Optimist Open - Saturday 3rd September

Our annual Optimist Open is back for 2022 on Saturday 3rd September! We have a great day planned of 7 races for both Main Fleet and Regatta Fleet! Regatta Fleet is for those newer to racing, who maybe haven't competed at an Open Meeting before, while Main Fleet is for those with a slightly more serious competitive streak and more experience!

We have a fantastic team of volunteers lined up to support this event and are looking forward to a great day of racing.

You can book your space here now!

Youth Supported Sailing

Following the success of Youth Supported Sailing last year we are bringing it back for this year's summer holidays! While we don't offer structured Spinnaker Youth Training sessions during the summer holidays we do offer Youth Supported Sailing on Sunday mornings, when SYT would usually run. During these sessions and instructor will be on hand to provide safety cover, hints, tips and advice, but we won't be running formal sessions.

If you have your own boat these sessions are free, but we do ask you book on so we can make sure there is sufficient safety boat cover in place. If you want to use a club Optimist or Topper this can be booked through the calendar for a reduced rate of just £10 a session.

The first of these sessions is on Sunday 24th July, and they will run weekly until Sunday 21st August!

Spinnaker Youth Training Block 3

Block 3 of Spinnaker Youth Training will start on Sunday 11th September, with our usual Improver, Begin to Race and Improver Racing groups available!

You can book on now via the link below. If you are unsure which group is appropriate for your child please speak to one of the instructors this Sunday and they will be happy to offer advice!

Book SYT Block 3

If you have any questions please get in touch!
