RS Aero UK Youth Team Winter Training 2023/24
The 2023/24 RS Aero UK Youth Team is now taking sign-ups ready for the winter season!
This year includes training with World Class Coaches, Online talks from 2 world renowned coaches and 2 UK Youth Championships entries (2023 & 2024), all this alongside a busy social program! A HUGE shout out to the reinvestment from the RS Aero UK Class Association to make the youth team more accessible and affordable to all. 

The RS Aero Youth Team 2023/24 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. These locations are: Lymington Town SC, Burghfield SC, Wimbleball SC, Paignton SC, Hayling Island SC, Oxford SC and Lee-on Solent SC!

Each weekend will have a title or question that will be a focus for the squad. 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.

Members of the team will receive access to 2 online talks, one from Mark Rushall, a world class sailing coach who has been working with the British Sailing team since 2006 and the other from Jon Emmett, a professional coach and expert dinghy sailor who has won National, European and World championships in his single handed dinghy. 

Over the last few years the class has built strong bonds with two coaches, Sammy IJ and George Cousins, who will continue to lead the Youth Team in 2023/24. They will be assisted by specialist elite coaches who will attend each weekend and give insight into their specific strengths to the 2023/24 Team. 

We have been incredibly lucky for 2023/24 to again get some EPIC funding from the RS Aero UK Class Association to support the 2023/24 season meaning the cost has remained as last year! The cost for the 5 weekends of on water training, 2 online seminars and 2 UK Youth Championship entries will be £550 per sailor
