Junior & Youth Sailing (JYS) in 2013

Following on from an amazing 2012, EYC's dedicated Junior & Youth Sailing (JYS) returns in 2013 with a full programme of sailing, training and racing specifically set out for all youth club members.·

On each Sunday between April to October, JYS will cater for beginner, intermediate and advanced/racing sailors.· Each session will run as a half-day and will either run during the morning or afternoon, dependent on the time of the tides.

New for 2013, the first Sunday of each month is our beginners / new to sailing session.· This session is ideal for anyone who has never tried sailing before and wants to give it a go.· The session costs just £3 per person and membership to EYC is free.· Therefore, any young person is encouraged to give it a go!

The remaining Sunday sessions are reserved for youth sailors who have gained their RYA Stage one and above.· The aim of these sessions is to provide coaching by improving sailing technqiues and performance by using the clubs fleet of training boats.· Youth sailors who have not yet gain their RYA Stage one can take up one of our courses, which run on the last weekend of the month.· Our two-day RYA Stage one course is just £65 per person and includes an RYA certificate as a record of achievement.

Youth sailors with previous sailing experience will be encoraged to take part in the race coaching provided.· As a club, we will be attending racing events not just at the club but at external locations such as Wilsonian SC, Queen Mary SC, Hayling Island SC and participanting in the Youth London Travellers Circuit.

Experienced youth members will also be called upon to develop as RYA assistant instructors to support all club training activities and events.

Opportunities to store private boats are also available in the secure boat park at EYC. Advice and guidance is always available on specific types of suitable boats and fleets from the team of instructors.
