Youth Travellers Series


The North East Youth Racing Series provides a great opportunity for young sailors in the region to develop their racing skills.

The series is organised by the RYA Regional Integrated Team, who are currently looking for parent volunteers who may be prepared to help to manage the series in their part of the region. Support and input from parents for the series is very much welcomed! 

Each event offers a competitive yet friendly racing environment, with on-the-water coaching for those who need or want it to help improve their boat handling, speed and results. 

This year's series is sponsored by Harken and has prizes for taking part in the overall series - and also for taking part in either the north or the south zones of the region for those who may not want to travel so far, with a joint prize giving at Ripon SC on Saturday 6 July, 2019.

We would like to assist host clubs by providing an "expected entries" list which will help them to plan their catering and race team requirements. Please sign up to register your interest for each of the series events - entry and payment will still be made on the day - by emailing the series organisers here with your name, boat, sail number and home club.
