Opti Green Fleet Training
Opti Intro Green and Green Fleet
On the basis of feedback from participants and engagement from Centreboard Committee, in 2017 The RPAYC is splitting Green Fleet up into Intro Green and Green. Previously the program had the kids down at the Club sailing, racing and running around with mates for nearly 8 hours straight. The idea of the new setup is to reduce the length of the day to something more manageable for the sailors.
The day will be broken into two parts, Intro Green Fleet and Green Fleet. The sailors, with the help of their coaches and parents, can decide on what they'd prefer to do. If you're unsure of which group your child should be sailing in please contact the Sailing Office.
The Dates: Sunday's (8 Sessions) 12th February- 2nd April.
Opti Intro Green Fleet
From 09:00 - 11:00. Focus on boat handling and on water confidence. The program aims to introduce very basic race concepts to prepare sailors for Green Fleet. A full training and development curriculum is offered to these new sailors in order to facilitate integration into sailing and the Club.
Opti Green Fleet
From 12:15 - approx 15:00. Sailors are introduced to races with multiple starts off a single committee vessel and are introduced to sailing on water with other fleet types.The focus remains on the fun and competition is used to advance sailors skills.
