Youth Squad

The NDYC Youth Squad is back.  All youngsters who have at least RYA Level 2 or above or are assessed as competent with the intension of undergoing RYA training during cadet weeks this year can join the Youth Squad.  There is no cost associated with the Youth Squad but you can join in sailing activities on selected Saturdays.  Please check out the calendar for details.

Youth Squad sailing will take place alongside Follow on Sailing dates for Adults.  The squad activities will not deliver formal RYA training but is designed to allow competence to be increased with the support of competent adults.  It should be stressed that parents are expected to be responsible for their children when at the sailing club or afloat during squad activities.  

There are also selected Family Follow on sailing opportunities that should be watched out for.

 Those not yet qualified to helm their own boats can team up with those a little more experience and sail two up in Picos or Fevas.  Single handed sailing is available in Picos or Optimists.

If you are attending a Youth Squad activity please make sure book into the event on the booking pages.
