Junior Learn to Race

Now you are ready to learn to race!

We welcome you to join our entry level Off The Beach coaching and introductory race program for young sailors who now wish to further advance their sailing to competition level.

Sailors will progress to sailing one of the club’s O’Pen Skiff dinghies, which is similar to a Tackers dinghy but slightly bigger.  You’ll have the support of your sailing coach to help you learn and make the transition into this new and exciting boat!

The safe waters of Salamander Bay are ideal to provide young sailors with the opportunity to extend their sailing experience and build confidence on the water.  It’s a great way to meet new friends, practice sailing techniques and to develop an understanding of basic racing rules as you navigate around a course.

Green Fleet and junior Club Racing is designed to introduce sailors and their families to friendly regular sailing and to what it means to be part of the Newcastle Cruising Yacht Club and Bay Sailing Centre communities in a fun and simple way.
