SYT Block 2 - Week 4
Spinnaker Youth Training is our club's regular youth training programme, running for 18 weekends a year during term time! Blocks of SYT run for 6 weeks at a time. Please book your space via week 1, you then have a space for all 6 weeks. For those sailors representing Spinnaker Sailing Club at events away from the lake please speak to the Chief Instructor to receive your reduced rate to allow for sessions missed.
Our training is split into several groups:
RYA Beginners - Working through the RYA Stage 1 or 2 Certificate as appropriate. Boats are provided for this group.
Improvers - This group is suitable for anyone who has completed RYA Youth Sailing Stage 2 or higher and looks at improving general sailing skills in single handed dinghies, using Optimists or Toppers. Members may use their own boat or hire one of the club's.
Begin to Race - aimed at introducing sailors with the ability of RYA Youth Stage 3 or higher to racing in single handed dinghies, using either Optimists, Toppers or ILCA4s (Laser 4.7). Members can use their own boat or hire a club one.
Improver Racing Single Handers - aimed at developing the racing skills of club members who have some experience of club racing and are looking at starting to travel to Open events. Coaching is in Optimists, Toppers or ILCA4s (Laser 4.7). Members can use their own boat or hire a club one.
Please note Begin to Race and Improver Racing group will not run on 23rd June due to the RYA Regional Junior Championship, which we encourage all our racers to attend! For more details about this great event please speak to James, Emma or Sally!
