School Holiday Course

The CYCA Youth Sailing Academy School Holiday Course provides an ideal introduction to keel-boat sailing for sailors aged 13-18 whose sailing experiences range from very limited to reasonably competent. Conducted four times a year during school term breaks, each course is four days in length and uses the CYCA Youth Sailing Academy’s fleet of Elliott 7m keel-boats, crewed by 5 sailors with an on-board instructor.
