UK Youth Winter Training - Poole, Dorset, UK
UK Youth Team Winter Training
Poole YC, Dorset
The UK Youth Winter Training Series is now in its 5th season and has continued its steady growth. The training series has now evolved to be Youth only (under 22) with 30 young applicants having applied for and signed up to the whole series, forming the RS Aero UK Youth Team.
Four top coaches will be lead by head coach Ross Harvey to deliver the six weekend series. The weekends are spread with one each month from November to April at some of the UKs top venues, rotating around the country.
Thanks to the continued support of Rooster
, members of the RS Aero UK Youth Team will each receive their RS Aero UK Youth Team jackets and race bibs to look smart both on and off the water!
The success of the annual Winter Training Series is becoming increasingly evident with 3 of our top youth sailors packing out the top 4 places at the recent RS Aero UK Inland Champs at Chew. That achievement can be put down to good coaching, enthusiasm and self-training, providing a steadily improvement over a couple of seasons.The six venues are;
Hayling Island SC - 3/4 Nov 2018
Chew Valley SC, Bristol – 8/9 Dec 2018
Rutland SC - 5/6 Jan 2019
Datchet SC, West London - 9/10 Feb 2019
Weymouth & Portland NSA - 9/10 March 2019

is easy to find, being located directly adjacent to the Cross Channel Ferry Terminal. As you approach Poole follow signs for the cross channel ferry. There are two bridges to cross, if the road signs indicate crossing via Poole’s Lifting Bridge is clear follow this, cross the bridge, take the next left turn and then the next right, As you near the ferry terminal you’ll pass under a large green gantry over the road with the words 'Welcome to the Port of Poole' emblazoned on it. Directly after this you’ll cross a railway line and find yourselves at a roundabout. Turn right at the roundabout and follow the road to the very end where you’ll find Poole Yacht Club.
If you are directed over the new Twin Sails Bridge turn left when you reach Blandford Road, at the mini roundabout go straight over, take the next right, right at the roundabout and follow the road to the end.
