Youth & Junior Fleets






Youth and junior sailing has for many years been a strong and important part of the Club.  Though largely for member’s offspring, juniors can and do join in their own right.

The aim is to provide opportunities for youngsters to develop a love of sailing, a sport that can be a lifetime interest. A few aspire to the pinnacle and thus far seventeen Olympians have started as RLym juniors.  The activities are a mix of training, racing, adventure and social events, and the Club is fortunate to have access to excellent sailing areas in the Western Solent, on the river and on adjacent lakes when a bit of shelter is required.

There are six fleets, all classes on the RYA pathway – Optimist, RS Tera, RS Feva, Laser (4.7 and Radial), 420 and 29er. Each fleet has a Fleet Captain responsible for the annual programme.   See the Fleet  web page for details.
The age range is 8-18, but in exceptional circumstances younger children may be allowed to participate.  All require parental consent, and a consent form has to be signed annually by parent or guardian.
