The BYS Youth Racing Squad is designed for youth sailors aged 12-17 who have progressed through the BYS Junior Sail Training program or a similar pathway at another club, and who are looking to further develop their boat-handling and racing skills in a new class of boat.
Our youth sailors require their own personal boat, with the majority of our squad using Lasers or Sabres, however two-handed dinghies such as 420s are also welcome. The program is run by qualified Australian Sailing coaches and runs for the whole season from November 2021 – February 2022. The full list of dates can be found below.
This program has a special focus on acquiring the skills needed to compete in racing, and all our youth sailors are strongly encouraged to engage in BYS club racing, as well as participate in regattas held throughout the season. To get involved youth sailors must be water-confident and have the skills, knowledge and experience gained from completing the Sail Training pathway.
