Junior sailing consists of both sail training and racing, with the goal being a safe sailing and an enjoyable experience.

Junior training sessions for beginner, intermediate and more advanced sailors are held most Saturday mornings, during the season, at the Tamar Yacht Clubs Beauty Point Club House. These programs are conducted by experienced and qualified instructors and coaches, operating under the safety supervision of the club rescue boat fleet.

 There are programs catering for first and second season sailors in Oppis, while larger juniors are catered for in either Sabot or Pacer class sailing dinghies.
More advanced crews train in Pacer or Flying 11 class boats.
Those who are gaining competence, and confidence, are encouraged to enter the Saturday afternoon races.
The very junior are also catered for with an on-water experience in the Dolphin, under the charge of an experienced adult coach.
TYC Coaching Program:
Currently the Club is running a coaching program to help further develop sailors as they progress. There is an 8 week session before and after Christmas.
