    What is an OnBoard Development Day?

    An OnBoard Development Day is designed to support the lead instructor & key volunteers involved in the running of the OnBoard programmes across the region.

    During the development day, we will be running a range of both on-water and land-based sessions to help enhance existing and new OnBoard delivery programmes. 

    If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to get in contact your OnBoard Officer Katie: 

    BYS Regional Junior Champs - OnBoard fleet 

    The BYS Regional Junior Champs is an event organised and run by the RYA over one weekend in various locations across the country. Previously called the Zone Champs there have traditionally been two fleets - the Championship Fleet and the Regatta fleet.

    Excitingly in 2018, we saw the inclusion of the third fleet for those relatively new to the sport of sailing - the Fun OnBoard Fleet. This fleet was hosted by qualified RYA coaches and focused around 'Games with Aims' rather than racing. 

    The Fun OnBoard Fleet was such a success that it will be coming back for 2019. Click here find out more information.
