RRYC/Premier Sailing  Junior Sailing Summer Camps Announced


This year there will be two week long day camps held at the club for our junior members and grand junior members.  These programs will be ran by Premier Sailing with support from our junior fleet members.

June 26-30 BEGINNERS LEARN TO SAIL WEEK

Age range: 6 – 17

This week is ideal for beginners or near beginners. Learn to sail an Optimist or a Sunfish (or possibly a 420 depending on conditions). Or if you have already done a little sailing, this week will be used to improve your skills. This year we will create special tee-shirts for RRYC Junior Training so please send your tee-shirt size when you register! Hours: 9.30 to 3.30 Monday - Friday

4th July Parade

We would like our Young Sailors to participate in the Irvington 4th July Parade. If you child or grandchild would like to join in get in touch in good time so that we can arrange an RRYC Junior Sailing teeshirt to wear at the parade.

August 14-18 PIRATE & ADVENTURE WEEK

Age range: 6 -17

A combination of our two most popular events, the adventure week which took place in June about four years ago, and the Pirate weeks of the past few years, this week is all about crazy fun on the water. Activities will include sailing to destinations, pirate activities and treasure hunts. In addition to general sailing instruction tied to the activities, sailing theory will include learning some traditional seamanship skills and basic navigation skills. Boats used will be Optimists, 420s and sunfish.

Hours: 9.30 to 3.30 Monday – Friday

INSTRUCTORS: Our Premier Sailing instructor training program brings new helpers and instructors into the fold every year and I am glad to say that we have several RRYC Juniors as major players in that system. Currently this includes Corey Jameson, Daniel Resio, Sabina German, Caroline Lay and Alex Resio. These instructors teach both at RRYC and at Premier Sailing at the Tides, and occasionally at ICYCC too.
