ELYC - Race Squad!

03 May 2020 1:17 PM | Millar (Administrator)

Although the club is closed at the moment, we just wanted to let you know about an exciting new initiative we will be launching as soon as we are back sailing......

ELYC Race Squad

This squad will be open to cadet members who have progressed from Go Racing and who show:

  • Enthusiasm
  • Drive
  • Talent
  • Commitment

The aim of the squad will be to:

  • develop our young sailors' dinghy racing skills
  • create a team environment in which to learn and race
  • provide support to team members if competing at travelling events 

Entry will be by application and selection.  The selection dates will be announced as soon as the club opens and sailing re starts.

The squad will be restricted to a maximum of six (minimum of four) sailors meeting monthly on a Sunday for a full day's coaching by one of our members, Sam Grimshaw.  Sam is a qualified RYA Race Coach and as a youth sailor was a member of a Zone Squad and competed at national and international events.  Sam will also support the team at away events.

Membership of the squad will be under frequent review with the possibility to join through the year.  For cadet members that don't make the squad at first there will be ample opportunity for continued development through our involvement with RYAS Development and Performance team. 

The RYAS Development and Performance team fully support our initiative which is in line with their vision for youth racing and have agreed to supply additional coaches if required.

All applications are welcome and will be considered from cadets who have completed one year of Go Racing (or equivalent).  Any interested cadets should complete the application from and return by 7th June 2020.  We will hold an information evening as soon as the club opens but if you have any questions in the meantime, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
