We are seeking expressions of interest from sailors aged 13-30 years, members and non-members, to participate in the 2019/2020 Squadron Development Keelboat Program.
Training is conducted on our fleet of Elliott 7s and provides on and off water training sessions and regatta experience. The program focuses on building core team work dynamics and advanced sail trim techniques while exposing the sailors to the format of Match Racing.
The SDKP consists of two squads which run adjacent to each other but with different durations:
Development Sailing Squad (DSS) for ages 13-25 yrs, May – August (6 months)
Senior Development Sailing Squad (SDSS) up to 30yrs, May – March (11 months)
Both squads will introduce participants to performance keelboat racing and enhance their sailing skills to an advanced level. Sailors must have demonstrated sailing ability at a club level and keelboat experience is also desirable.
Interested? Please come to our Information and Training day on 4 May at 9am in the RSYS Youth Training Room.
