Junior Programmes

Training champions for 30 years, The Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron Youth Training Programme has been training top youth keelboat sailors for 30 years.

The RNZYS Sailing school alongside the Youth Training Programme regularly run school holiday programmes. We aim these at those with some sailing experience but would like more keelboat experience.

We use our Elliott 7s with 4 students to 1 coach/ current YTP participant to go out and enjoy time on the water, improving existing skills as well as gain experience in a different boat. Some water safety and theory aspects also included.

Our YTP participants with support from the YTP and Performance Programme coach will ensure the content for the day is appropriate to the conditions and will always be beneficial to our young people’s learning.

Lunch is included in the course price.
