Event Type

The first opportunity of the 2022 season for our RYA Youth  Start Racing followed by Intermediate / Club Racing as a full training courses. Open to DSC members and the general public for young people aged 8 – 18 years of age.

Hopefully back to some normality this year,  as no restrictions are currently in place, however we’ll observe and implement best practise & procedures at DSC during our courses.

This is the part of the RYA Youth National sailing scheme – Having learnt to sail you may wish to start racing and join a club. This course takes you through the fundamentals of getting off the start line and round the course, introducing the basic skills needed to enter your first race or have fun with friends



Please come prepared to go afloat, bring sun cream warm hats and also a towel, and a change of clothes for the way home in the car, a fleece would also be useful as our classroom is although covered and heated as required is outside.

Changing and shower facilities will be available, but please arrive ready to go afloat in the mornings. Wetsuits will be available, but must be taken home and rinsed / dried at the end of the day and returned at the end of the week for sanitation.

This is a 4 day course.
