YOUTHSAIL SAILING PROGRAM
Junior Sailing & YouthSail
The Junior and Youthsail Sailing programs at Noosa Yacht & Rowing Club are continually growing from strength to strength. The NYRC sailing programs now deliver sailing to more than 300 kids and adults each week.
The main objective of the Youthsail program is to introduce sailing both as a sport and a healthy lifestyle to as many juniors as possible. The program consists of several graded stages through which we allow our young sailors to develop their confidence, skills, and love of sailing, all the while not forgetting that it is FUN! This is achieved using a fleet of sailboats which include Tackers, Vagabonds, Sabots, Lasers, and Blazer 23’s. Many of these boats are owned by the Club and utilised by the various programs operated at the club.
Programs offered include:
- Sporting Schools (Federal Government Funded Primary School Program)
- Sailability Noosa
- Learn to Sail Program for 7 – 12-year-olds
- Learn to Sail Program All Ages
- Squad Sailing – extend your sailing ability, runs during the School Term
- Private Lessons – one on one
- School Holiday Funsail Programs
- Thursday and Friday FunSail, runs during the School Terms
- Blazer 23 Development Squad
Anyone wishing to learn to sail is most welcome. Fees apply for many courses and coaching activities to cover the cost of coaching staff and equipment. These vary from activity to activity and details will be provided upon request.
Currently, Youthsail offers Racing Squad training on Thursday afternoons (Tackers, Optimist, Open Bic, Sabot and Laser); we host various School group sessions from Monday till Friday during each school term, and Sailability Noosa operates on Thursday mornings from March to September.
The Blazer 23 Youth Development squad races on Wednesdays (WAGS) and every second Saturday.
