Youth Club Racing
Carsington Youth Racing
The Club runs supervised youth racing on Saturday afternoons in blocks that are integrated with the Advanced Performance Sailing Courses.
The purpose is to encourage young sailors to put into practice the skills taught in previous courses and to provide them with the confidence and experience to launch themselves upon the unsuspecting dinghy racers when and if they feel ready.
Whilst some youths are ready to go straight into the youth racing series, others will benefit from taking part in the Fun Racing Sessions initially, which take place on the same days.
Murray Leiper will be coordinating the Youth Racing for 2016 with help from Will Gould and Sam Leiper.
The 2016 Fun Racing Sessions will be coordinated by Richard Tower with help from Emma Hickman and Julian Tower.
Whilst Saturday Youth Racing provides young racers with the experience required before they enter into the adult club racing series it also provides them with the opportunity to decide if they wish to progress in further Youth Racing development outside the Club, many of whom regularly hold training events at the Club during the year.
