Youth Training at Chichester Yacht Club
2013 NEW DATES UPDATED!
Youth Racing and Training
PLEASE SCROLL DOWN:
Instruction and training in Optimists in 2013 will be organised by the Optimist Fleet. See the Optimist training link on the right of the homepage.
All those who have attended the club training before are working on and improving their sailing and racing skills. As training progresses we hope to have a coach on hand to watch and offer advice when you enter the slow fleet races. Is it for you? Probably!
If you can already sail round a triangle, you can progress to the CYC training, which ultimately aims to bring you to a standard to join in the slow fleet club races, and beyond that to the RYA squads standard.
Martin Orton is continuing as the head coach for all the sessions in 2013.
In 2011,we introduced the RYA Youth Sailing Scheme log book and followed the stages of race training: Start Racing, Intermediate Racing and Advanced Racing. Well Done to all of you who made the grade over the past 2 years! We will continue this in 2013.
The log book cost is £4.50, I have some to sell to you!
The club training for the juniors is usually in Toppers and Fevas. Other boats are invited to attend! During 2012 we coached a group of young enthusiastic laser sailors also and plan to expand this for 2013, as we now have 2 Lasers owned by the club available for hire.
There will of course be opportunities to race in the slow fleet in all the club racing series. Take advantage of that and have a go or just go for a sail while the racing is on
We split the fleet according to experience and ability, and try to train in groups of 8 or less.Times are; “ Boats ready, crew changed if possible!”Toppers and Fevas.
I will try and hold a Laser group on these days also, depending on numbers of Toppers and Fevas and RIB availability.

The generosity of club member coaches in providing their services for free, together with the Volvo Championship Club funding and the generosity of the RYA in providing Instructor courses, means that we can keep the fees at very reasonable rates.
I hope you will agree that this is still excellent value for sessions that everyone: sailors, parents and coaches thoroughly enjoy. Thank you so much for your support.
We do rely on help from youth sailors’ parents on the training days. Last year was a lot of fun and I am extremely grateful to all of you who mucked in and helped in many ways.
I will be asking for help nearer the time for tea bar duties, coach boat crew, beachmaster, safety boat launching and retrieving.

There will be a cruise and race down to East Head for a picnic on the beach and back! We tried this in 2012: the first date was blown off, the second date was a huge amount of fun. Families and Adults sailed and kayaked down to East Head with Cyclone and a Rib in support. We picnicked and played on the beach for 4 hours before returning to CYC.
West Sussex School and Youth Sailing Association Regatta
This 2 day event will be held at Dell Quay this year, on Saturday 21st& Sunday 22nd September 2013, about 120 children take part. CYC won the shield in 2011, and the Topper entrants did well in 2012 at Felpham, braving strong winds on the sea. Here’s another chance to race in familiar sheltered waters, so mark it off in your diary. Children relatively new to racing are very welcome at this event. Lets see if we can win the shield back!
