Junior & Youth Sailing
Junior & Youth Pathway
See below for details of the pathway.
Oppie Groups & Transition Squad
Oppie groups and Transition Squad are managed by the Oppie Club.
The transition squad provides instruction to sailors looking to move up from Oppies and develop core sailing skills in order to sail bigger, faster boats. If you are already a competent racing Oppie sailor, you may wish to bypass the transition squad and attend youth training instead.
This training is managed by the Youth Committee.
It is suggested that sailors are aged 12 - 18 and weigh 45 - 80kg in order to learn the most in this squad.
Race training sessions are held on selected Saturdays throughout the year. It is recommended that sailors participate in Sunday racing.
Do I need my own boat?
Sailors should either use their own boat or hire a club boat.
