Transition Programmes

RYA Scotland supports transitioning from Junior to Youth Classes (T1) and from Youth to Senior Classes (T2).

The RYA Scotland aims to provide sailors with the very best support as they transition between junior and youth classes, and from youth to elite level. Each year in June we run a transition weekend which gives junior sailors the opportunity to try out the youth class boats and get input from the youth sailors, coaches and RYA staff, to help with the decision of what class to sail at the next stage. 

Matt and Kate are also available at other times to discussindividual transitions with sailors and parents, as the timeframe and route ofeach sailor is likely to be slightly different. One of the strengths of theScottish system is the individualised approach we can take with each sailor.
