Intro to the coaching. What makes a good RS Aero Sailor? Coaches:
Sammy IJ & George CousinsLymington
is home to one of the country's largest RS Aero fleets now with 50+, including some talented young sailors scoring three golds and a silver across the 4 RS Aero Classes at the recent Europeans!
Part of that is likely down to the wonderful local training ground of the western Solent, with varied and often challenging conditions changing every hour of the day with the tide.
to Sammy Isaacs-Johnson
for putting together another fantastic programme for the Youth Team Winter Training! Here are the details from Sammy;THE OVERVIEW
In 2022 the RS Aero UK Youth Team is going through a transformation! With a whole new set of locations, elite coaches, a busy social program and a whole new set of locations across the country! A HUGE shout out to the re-investment from the RS Aero UK Class Association to make the UK Youth Team more accessible and affordable to all.
The RS Aero Youth Team 2022/23 will be visiting 7 different locations over 7 months across highly RS Aero populated areas of the country. A mix of coastal and inland venues will allow sailors to develop skills for all types of sailing.
15/16th October - Lymington Town SC, Hants
26/27th November - Lee on Solent SC, Hants
10/11th December - Burghfield SC, Berks
21/22nd January - Draycote WSC, Rugby
11/12th February - Paignton SC, Devon
11/12th March - Hayling Island SC, Hants
1/2nd* April - Bowmoor SC, nr Swindon
*The final day, Sunday 2nd April at Bowmoor SC will be the 2023 RS Aero UK Youth Champs (entry fee included for series entrants), after a series summary training day on the Saturday.
Each weekend will have a topic that will form a focus for the Team. The sessions will be a mixture of boat handling skills, racing tactics and much more - with the goal to build up to a summer of Championship racing.
Over the last few years the class has built strong bonds with two coaches. Sammy IJ and George Cousins will continue to lead the Team in 2022/23 with the assistance of elite coaches from across the UK.
Past World & National RS Aero 7 Champion Sam Whaley, top young RS Aero 7 talent Jack Miller and past RS Aero 5 World and National Champion Andrew Frost. Plus others TBC.
These elite specialist coaches will attend each weekend and give insight into their specific strengths to the 2022/23 Team.
For the 2022/23 Team we have added new top locations to our existing top locations. You would think this would mean a price increase? We have been incredibly fortunate for 2022/23 to gain some EPIC re-investment funding from the RS Aero UK Class Association to support the 2022/23 season, resulting in the cost actually going down! The cost for the 7 weekends training will be just £550 per sailor.SIGN UP!
