Youth Racing Squad (YRS) 12-18 yrs

The Youth Racing squad is aimed at sailors who have worked their way through the OutThere Program or who have completed both Youth Challenge and Youth Skills. As the name suggests, it is focused around racing and integrates the Sunday afternoon OTB club racing into its training structure.

29er’s 12 – 18 yrs

Spearheaded by some of the best 29er coaches in the country, our squad is lucky enough to be able to make use of one of the club 29ers before having to commit to purchasing their own.

Have a go at sailing with different people and find your best match before diving in and getting ready to race!

Green Fleet (GF) 7 – 12

Green Fleet is designed to facilitate ongoing learning and provide a more individualised progression pathway. Without the restrictions of tight curriculums and timelines, this group is designed to foster sailors into racing up to a state or nationally recognised “intermediate” level. Sailors do not pass or fail this course but rather continue to get support tailored to the demands of racing.
