Junior & Youth Classes
For those sailors that are less suited to the Optimist, have outgrown it, or that wish to sail double handed, the club has active sailors in the RYA Junior Pathway classes of Toppers, Lasers, and RS Fevas as well as in other junior and youth classes.
Many of these sailors compete on the open circuits and then between times take part in the club racing on a Sunday, as well as the Wednesday evening pursuit race during the summer.
Burghfield Sailing Club is represented at local and national squad level in a number of junior and youth classes and to help our sailors compete successfully at this level, the club organises specific coaching activities for each fleet during the year.
For those that want to try a different boat before buying one, the club has Toppers, Lasers and RS Fevas.
