The Sailing Pathway
Most sports and recreational activities present their participants with a pathway of incremental skills to provide progression and ongoing challenge. Think of the coloured belts in karate or the grades in a musical instrument. The pathway concept has been extensively developed and deployed in sports around the world, as the structure of player/athlete development and retention.
Yachting Australia has had some elements of a pathway underpinning some of its activities for many years. Its learn to sail courses have been based on a stepped level of courses, and its Development and High Performance Program’s success have been guided by a clear pathway.
