RYA Youth Sailing Stage 1

RYA Young Sailors Scheme

The RYA Young Sailors Scheme encourages young people to learn to sail in stages, within a sound framework of safety and tuition.

No time limits are given for the different stages, as children learn at very different rates, according to their age and enthusiasm. Nobody can fail – some may need a little more time and experience. Certificates are not awarded simply for attending a course.

Our aims are to ensure they will have had a lot of fun, learnt a great deal and want to continue sailing in the future. Often it might might be necessary to repeat a course before advancing to the next stage.
