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.

Other Junior Sailing Events

There is a whole range of sailing events aimed at junior sailors across the North West and beyond, including the Northwest Junior Traveller Series,, Topper Open events and RYA Zone coaching and qualifying events for sailors looking to extend their skills further afield.
If you are interested in sailing events outside of the club, check out the notice boards for dates and details or contact Burwain member, Clive Grummett who is also the Northwest Topper Representative.
