Paignton SC, Devon
11/12th February
Supported by Rooster 

Topic:  Start lines - How do I improve?  
Coaches:  George Cousins & Gerg Bartlett 

Paignton SC were hosts of our 100+ RS Aero 2022 UK Nationals and what a week that was! We look forward to revisiting to the lovely Tor Bay. On Devon's English Riviera it wil be shorts and T shirts for sure by Feb!

THANKS to Sammy Isaacs-Johnson for putting together another fantastic programme for the Youth Team Winter Training! Here are the details from Sammy;

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.
