Junior Summer Courses Dates 2022

The National Yacht Club are making preparations to run clinics for our junior members from June until August 2022. Last year we learnt how to deal with Covid 19 and provided successful clinics for all of our young members.

We plan to offer clinics in start sailing, basic skills, improving skills, advanced boat handling, start racing, kites and wires (using club wayfarers and ventures), team racing (using our club fireflies), feva clinics and adventure clinics. We also plan to run optimist and laser racing clinics with our advanced racing coaches throughout the summer. 
We will have optimists, toppers and FEVAs to charter for members who want to try out a different boat over the summer. 

We will keep you updated, but please be reassured that we are planning a wonderful summer for you all at the National Yacht Club.

Provisional dates for Summer clinics in the NYC.

Course 1 – 7th June – 17th June (9 days)
Course 2 – 20th June – 1st July (10 days)
Course 3 – 4th July – 15th July (10 days)
Course 4 – 18th July – 29th July (10 days)
Course 5 – 2nd August – 12th August (9 days)

TRI Sailing Clubs TY 2021/22 Christmas Update

It’s been a busy 3 months since we kicked off our Tri Club Transition Year presentation on the 8th September.
We’ve been very fortunate in the current climate to have been able to accomplish so much in such a short time. This is a testament to your dedication and the determination of the TY students to make things happen.
