Due to the ongoing measures to reduce the spread of Covid-19 all registration for the Academy sessions below have been put on hold until further notice.
As the Covid-19 pandemic has resulted in many changes to our usual routine, we have worked hard to ensure we have a new Academy system in place so our Junior and Youth Sailors got back out on the water again in 2021.
We have been encouraging sailors to stay at their home clubs and have less distance to travel although welcome potential to travel across Scotland opening up from the 26th April.
Our new format has all safety operating procedures in place and follows the hosting club's procedures. As clubhouses and changing facilities are closed, most of the sessions will be long half day sessions however there will be various training block weekends to follow. It is key to recognise that RYA Scotland will follow government guidelines at all times to help stop the spread of Covid-19 and keep all of our sailors, coaches and parents safe for activities.
These Academies are aimed at start racing/racing sailors, rather than complete beginners. Please see our booking system here for dates of sessions that have been confirmed. More Academies will be added when they have been confirmed. Please note that entry for these sessions will close 12 days before the first training date in the block, and we would really appreciate everyone booking on as soon as possible. If you have any difficulties please contact Kate Pounder on 07795 248859
Sailors should have their own boat, however there is a small fleet of Toppers available. Please contact Kate Pounder in advance to organise.
