On this RYA Youth Racing Course, youths will learn all the skills required to start racing, including how to maximise boat and outwit your opponents. From fun racing to regattas – this course teaches all you need to know to get off the start line and round the course. We have a programme that builds on basic racing skills and helps improve the key principles of starting, boat handling, boat speed, strategy and tactics.

I just wanted to say how impressed with the RYA 1 and RYA 2 course our son completed a couple of weeks ago. My husband is a sailor and knows his stuff and he thought the course was excellent. We particularly wanted to single out one of your staff members – Tom – who was amazing.
