The Newcastle Cruising Yacht Club is committed to providing opportunities for youth sailors to further develop their sailing skills, knowledge and experience.
Our Youth Keelboat Program aims to provide valuable experience and transition opportunities for sailors from dinghies into keelboats, to further develop their sailing skills in both fleet racing and match racing. Applications are open to members and non-members of the NCYC.
The Youth Keelboat Program provides participants with access to coaches, technical experts and experienced sailors to help develop their sailing and keelboat skills.
Although 2020 is kicking off with a late start, the Squad will run to end of August, with a focus on avoiding conflict with summer dinghy racing programs.
Squad members are eligible to be selected into representative Youth Teams for a number of youth keelboat events in both fleet racing and match racing.
Sailors are not required to have already formed crews, individual sailors can apply for the 2020 Youth Keelboat Program and coaches will work with participants and select teams for the various training days and events in the sailing calendar.
