The Squadron Keelboat Program (SKP) is a performance keelboat training program for sailors between 13 – 23 years old.
Founded in 2000, the SKP provides the opportunity for youth sailors to become involved in keelboat racing at a state, national and international level. The program also places a significant emphasis on assisting sailors in getting on to larger yachts to compete in the RSYS summer, winter and offshore series.
The program uses our Club’s fleet of Elliott 7s keelboats and other Squadron owned vessels to develop sailors’ boat handling skills to an advanced level. The program is coached by Nev Wittey, Olympian and America’s Cup skipper, and is supported by the SKP management team of Jack Littlechild and RSYS Captain Karyn Gojnich.
