RS Fevas

The RS Feva is the world’s best selling two-person sailboat in recent years. It is a one design, two person, hiking, asymmetric spinnaker boat, ideal for youngsters and parent/child combinations to sail before transitioning to a 29er or 420 or any other double hander. The boat offers the chance to sail with a friend and the opportunity to learn how to fly an asymmetric spinnaker. The suggested combined sailor weight is 85 to 110kg. The Feva is built using a hard-wearing pioneering construction technique which is virtually indestructible and has a modern yet simple rig. The class has a competitive National and International racing circuit and is an RYA Supported Junior class.

The Club now has four boats available for hire, which can be used for training or racing.   Feva sailors often join in with the Monday evening dinghy racing and Friday evening Junior racing during the summer and other sailors take advantage of the club boats being available to hire for other events, please Contact the Club for bookings.
 
The club organises regular training sessions, which involve a mix of fleet racing and team racing.  Both forms of racing require boat handling skills, but team racing also helps develop a solid knowledge of the rules and tactics as the aim is to establish an overall winning combination you’re your team over the opposition.
 
Many sailors who go to university and join the sailing teams there will learn to team race so this a great opportunity to learn this skill.
 
Parents are encouraged to volunteer helping run the training sessions by coaching, helming or crewing a rib.  Rib helms are required to have PB2, but the club runs courses throughout the year so it is not difficult to become qualified and involved in the training sessions.
 
If you would like to try out this fun boat, join in with a training session or would just like more information about the class please contact David Bignold, the class captain at lymingtonfevas@gmail.com

Joining the Royal Lymington

There are two ways that junior sailors can become Members of the Yacht Club:

1. Full Family Membership
If a parent or both parents join then any children under 18 years of age can become family Members.  This is the preferred way and offers lots more benefits, such as subsidised coaching, cheaper tariff in the bar & restaurant, full use of the Club's facilities, access to training courses and opportunities to support the Youths  & Juniors.
2. Junior Membership
Children/Youths  aged 8 – 17 can join in their own right as Junior Members. The annual subscription is the only as much as the cost of a buoyancy aid, however there are additional costs for coaching, which don't apply to family members.

For more information on Membership click here, or email the Membership Secretary

Alternatively you can email the Class Captain.
