RS Aero UK Youth Team 2020/21

07/08/2020 19:12:47
RS Aero UK Youth Team 2020/21
Applications now open! 
by Ben Rolfe, UK Youth Co-ordinator
 
We are pleased to be able to launch our RS Aero UK Youth Team 2020/21 Applications!

For the winter of 2020/21 the RS Aero Youth Programme will evolved to be divided into three regions. This will promote the ability to socially distance at clubs as necessary and is also line with the RYA's pre Covid policy to regionalise training and support local activity. This will save the hours and expense of time spent travelling. There will also still be National Training sessions, open racing events and Zoom based online video sessions in ability groups, to gain a thorough mix.
 
The regions are identified as South East, South West and Midlands & North. Please review the youth team map below to see your defined region. If numbers in one region exceed the space limits you may be asked to join another region.
 
This year we will not be capping numbers of sailors within the Youth Team.
