Optimist and Bic O'pen
The Optimist (Opti) and Bic O'pen are the preferred classes for juniors aged 7-14 years at RMYS.
Open Fleet is a sailing program open to those sailors who are already actively competing in Intermediate or Open competition. Participants will be required to supply their own dinghy.
Coaching will run on Thursday afternoons, and racing on Sunday afternoons, during Term 4 and Term 1.
Participants in the Thursday afternoon coaching program will be required to be Junior Members of RMYS, and at least one parent/guardian is also required to join the club. The fee covers both Thursday coaching and Sunday racing.
Opti and Bic O'pen sailors from all clubs are very welcome to join in the racing on Sunday afternoons. Membership of RMYS is not required, but a casual race entry fee will apply.

RMYS has a long and proud history of 12 foot Cadet sailing, which continues to this day. The 3-person Cadet is a great next step for those who have grown out of Optis and Bic O'pens, and who want to learn more about teamwork and trimming spinnakers. The class is open to sailors up to 19 years of age.
RMYS members regularly compete in the Stonehaven Cup (the Australian championship for this class), held in early January each year. The 2016 event will be held at RMYS for the first time in four years.
Cadet racing takes place every Sunday morning during Term 4 and Term 1. There are also selection events for the Stonehaven Cup throughout Terms 3 and 4. Participants must be Junior members of RMYS.
