SYT - Spinnaker Youth Training
n addition to our Youth RYA courses, Spinnaker Youth Training, or SYT, provides a great way for any junior members to get out sailing on a regular basis. Coaching sessions aim to increase both the skill and confidence of any sailor, ranging from those who are just begining their sailing journey through to those looking to race with the best sailors across the UK! We cater for this range of ability by means of a range of graded coaching sessions, from Improver groups for those who just started sailing and on to racing groups for those looking to compete.
These courses are available from the Easter holidays until October half term, and are open to full members of the Club. Sessions are spread across the day on Saturday and Sunday morning, with an opportunity to join the Club racing on Sunday, where an instructor is available to provide support during the first race every weekend when SYT is running.
In addition to our regular weekend training we also have Race Coaching camps throughout the year during school holidays, and for our keener and more advanced sailors some opportunities through the winter months as well!
Training is provided in Optimists, Teras, Toppers, Fevas and Laser 4.7s. Sailors can use their own boats, or their are a limited number of club dinghies available to hire.
We rely on parents supporting these sessions be being available to support their children in rigging and launching their dinghies.
