Youth Dinghy and Windsurf Training

Training for our youth members is available in two forms: RYA Courses (in blocks of 2 or 5 days) and Spinnaker Youth Training, our own programme for allowing young sailors to continue sailing and developing once they have learnt the basics. At the bottom of this page you can download a PDF version of our current training programme, where activities are grouped by course/ability with the dates for the whole year viewable. All of this training can then be booked via our calendar

RYA Training

As a Club we can deliver a range of RYA certificated dinghy courses from Stage 1 for those who have never been in a boat before to Performance Sailing for those looking for more speed and power! Meanwhile we can offer stages 1 and 2 of the RYA Youth Windsurf Scheme as well for those who want to try this exciting sport. Below are a couple of diagrams showing the pathway through the RYA Youth Dinghy and Windsurfing Schemes, and at the bottom of the page are some links to more information about what is involved in each course.

For our RYA Courses we have a range of options available, including 5-day Monday to Friday holiday courses and 2-day mid-week and weekend courses, we hope there is something to suit you.

On our training courses all specialist equipment and boats are provided, you just need to join us with your lunch and clothes which can get wet!

Spinnaker Youth Training

Spinnaker Youth Training is our regular youth dinghy coaching programme which runs primarily on weekends with some additional Race Coaching Camps mid-week during school holidays. It is designed to allow young sailors to carry on once they have learnt the basics and progress from beginner to world class racer. Please see more details on this page.

Class Association Training

We have fantastic links with both the International Optimist Class Association and International Topper Class Association. Each winter Spinnaker Sailing Club hosts the Southern Pre-RTG Training for these class associations, who provide their own coaches. We are also a member club of the JETS Programme, a collaboration between 6 south coast clubs to offer structured coaching to racing sailors in Toppers each winter. This training is bookable directly with the Class Associations.
