Dinghy Squads

The RSYS Dinghy Squads Program

Our program provides coaching and racing sessions for sailors in Optimists (Green Fleet and Open), Lasers (4.7, Radial and Full Rig), and Pacers.

Our Dinghy Squads

Optimist Squad – Green Fleet is suitable for sailors who have completed the Tackers ‘Learn to Sail’ Program
Optimist Squad – Open Fleet is best suited to sailors who are confident on the water in their own boat.
Laser Squad is for those sailors who have moved on from the Optimist and are looking for the next step along their sailing pathway.
Pacer Squad is a new initiative launched by the Squadron and focuses on developing sailors skills in a double-handed class, this includes spinnakers, teams racing and match racing.

Registration for the Dinghy Squads Program is open to all eligible RSYS Members. If you are interested in becoming a Member of RSYS, take a look at the RSYS Membership Information Brochure.
