Our summer race camp returns in 2019 after the success of last year. Open to adults and juniors, this is a great opportunity to get out on the water with the support of our coaches and instructors  for a week!  


The race camp is aimed at members who have some sailing experience  from attending the Go Racing or Friday Sailing sessions the club runs. The camp will involve tips to make your boat go faster, getting to grips with how to start a race and tactics to get past your competition on the race course. If you enjoy the Go Racing sessions and then this is for you!

We strongly recommend that you have been attending our Go Racing evenings or Fun Fridays regularly before signing up for this week. 

The exact content of this course will be dependent on the participants skill mix and weather. The course will aim to cover the Start Racing syllabus. For further information on the RYA syllabus, please see the RYA website.

It should be noted that certificates are awarded through the RYA scheme, and thus only awarded when skills can be shown at the correct level. The club takes no responsibility for the completion of certificates, we will support participants towards achieving their best. However, it is important that junior sailors present with the right skill level for the course they wish to do.


Participants should be confident in the water and able to swim 50m in light clothing.

You will be asked to complete an application form and a medical consent form on the ELYC website.

This week course is for adult and juniors who have a reasonable level of sailing experience. 

If you have any further questions please see our FAQ page or contact Ben Wilcox,
