RYA Youth Training Stages 1,2,3 & 4

Developing junior sailing skills
Sailing should be fun, however it is also possible to measure the progressions of each junior member using the RYA Youth Training Stages 1,2,3 & 4. Throughout the Sailfish activities we will be able to monitor children’s progress against the RYA stages, thereby giving them confidence to progress and become a more independent sailor.
