Winter Squads

The CYCA Youth Sailing Academy conducts winter training squads in conjunction with other sailing clubs to allow sailors to participate and build their skills across multiple disciplines and classes within the sport of sailing. Winter Squads are open to members and non-members of the CYCA and are tiered into three levels.

Talented Sailor Squad (TSS)

Graduates from School Holiday Courses or sailors active in dinghy sailing for 3 – 5 years are welcome to apply for this squad. Students from this course gain valuable skills in tactics and strategy of fleet racing and may become involved with yacht racing.

Sailors who have demonstrated exceptional fleet racing skills or graduated from other YSA squads are invited to attend. Participants from this course gain valuable skills in match racing and are given the opportunity to represent the CYCA at interclub regattas. They may also become involved with yacht racing.

Advanced Squad (AS)

This course fine-tunes the sailor in all aspects of the sport.  Racing rules, tactics, physical fitness, campaign planning, sail trim and boat maintenance are just some of the subjects covered over the course.  Participants in the Advanced Squad have the opportunity to represent the CYCA in a number of national and International Youth and under 25’s match racing regattas and are highly sought after as yacht crews.
