RPAYC Youth Focus Group


Royal Prince Alfred Yacht Club is establishing a ‘Youth Focus Group’. This focus group aims to enliven club youth and juniors in many ways; by giving voice and communication from youth; leading youth activities; developing leadership skills in young members; give opportunities to young members to develop themselves as sailors and people; together with senior committee mentoring partnerships.
