CYCA Women’s Training Program (WTP)

The CYCA Women’s Training Program (WTP) will allow sailors to develop the skills necessary to compete in other CYCA sailing events. The course combines both on and off water training over the 22 – 24 March 2024.

The course will be conducted on the Youth Sailing Academy’s fleet of Elliott 7m keelboats.
