The RWYC Youth Academy Programme

Become a Cadet

The sessions conform to the RYA’s Start Sailing syllabus and assessment is continual throughout the season. To enroll as a cadet at the Club, children need to be at least 8 years old and can continue sailing in the Cadet Section.

Priority will be given to past cadets on a first come, first served basis.

Timetable

Please register your interest by emailing Beth Hayward – beth@rwyc.org and if there are still places available, you will be invited to attend.
