Youth Sailing Academy

Youth Sailing Academy
This term we have designed an exciting new sailing course aimed at Youth Sailors at Gosford Sailing Club. It will involve a total of 8 on-water sessions in the magic 25 sailing boats, as well as some theory sessions. The course aims to improve boat handling skills in the larger boats whilst increasing the participant’s knowledge of sailing with both a symmetrical and a-symmetrical spinnaker. This will include introducing and developing match racing techniques. We endeavour to have 2-3 coaches running the sessions each week. This is a great opportunity to meet similar levelled sailors and have a great time out on the water! Come along, have fun and increase your knowledge and skills in the exciting magic 25 sailing boats. Please note: Participants must be at least 13 years of age and have completed 3 years minimum of skippering.
