RYA Zone Squad
The process for application for a winter zone squad place is by attending an open meeting in each RYA Zone, known as an indicator event, the BYS Regional Junior Championships and a training day. For further information on the RYA Zone Squad selection process please see the notice of selection
If selected your sailor will be expected to attend a land day in early November, followed by 6 weekends across the winter. All sessions are run by professional coaches and are subsidised by the RYA. Sailors not only attain new sailing skills but also an improved attitude to learning, new friendships are formed and many other life skills. Many sailors see this training as the first chapter in their sailing journey.
