Pee Wee Junior Sailing Division

Courses offered by the Junior Sailing Division of RPYC are aimed at boys and girls aged 7-15 years.

Initial training consists of 5 x 2hour Introductory Course using the plastic training Optimists. During this course the children are taught the basics of sailing, which includes, rigging a boat as well as safety of the water. Training is conducted by experienced instructors and occurs within the confines of the marina.

Stage 2 - sees the children move onto the fiberglass Optimists, which are used for racing. This course also consists of 5 x 2 hour sessions. During this course children are introduced to racing techniques, rules etc. Training occurs outside the marina.

Stage 3 - is a recent addition to the Training schedule of the Junior Sailing Division and is aimed at those children who have successfully completed stage 2 and would like to continue sailing with the intention of joining the racing Squad.

The Racing Squad consists of the senior sailors who have been sailing for a while. They train every weekend in order to sharpen their racing skills.

Experience and extremely competent volunteers do all instruction, with courses being held over weekends.

Regattas are held during the course of the year and all the kids are encouraged to compete.
