RYA YOUTH SAILING SCHEME
The Youth Scheme is usually completed in small dinghies suitable for your size. To make the most of our courses, ensure you are confident with the skills of one course before moving on to the next course. Most courses are a minimum of two days long (or an equivalent number of short sessions). They may be run over a longer period, especially if you haven’t sailed since your last course. Sailing is a sport which gets better with practice and you should try to sail between courses whenever you can. Practice makes perfect!
