Open Pathway Training 

Introduction The RYANI Open Pathway Training (OPT) is open to all sailors under the age of 16 in Topper, Optimist and Laser 4.7 classes.  Training may also be provided for U19s in the Laser and 420 classes.  It is aimed primarily at those sailors who wish to develop their racing skills with a Squad coach in order to help them gain a good understanding of racing within the class and  to go on to compete at open class events and the RYANI Youth Championships and looking to join the RYANI Performance Pathway.

Some of the Open Pathway Training Days are planned around or in conjunction with the Irish Topper Class Association. Please ensure you check the ITCA webpage for further opportunities.

Sailors should be at RYA Start Racing level and be able to confidently and competently sail around a triangular course in a force 4 and stronger.

Daily Format

Sessions will normally start at 10 am and end at around 4.30 pm.  Sailors should be rigged to get on the water as soon as possible in the morning.  Training gear (trainers etc) is also essential for on shore sessions/alternatives. Sailors should bring their own packed lunch. 

Fees
