Cadets - The preferred 3 person class for 12- 18 year olds.
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 Historic Stonehaven Cup (the Australian championship for this class), held in early January each year. The January 2015 event will be held on King Island, Tasmania. We have 9 sailors already participating.
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.
Check out the RMYS general calendar for more details. And to join the Cadet Squad contact Rod at the RMYS office on 9534 0227.
