Do you have children between 11 - 17 years that would like to regularly sail? RMYS currently have placements open in our Youth Sailing Program. It's a great opportunity for them to become tomorrow's next sailing leaders.
All children must have completed the following Sail Training Programs at a minimum before applying for a placement in the RMYS Junior Squad.
