Pagham Yacht Club Open Youth Regatta in Assosiation with WSSYSA
This event is aimed at encouraging youth sailors to start racing, something both West Sussex Schools Sailing Association and us here at Pagham Yacht Club feel strongly about. Sailing teaches our children a sense of resilience, responsibility, team work and encourages them to get outside and lead an active healthy lifestyle.
This event is open to sailors under the age of 19 (on the day of the event) The cut off point for boat handicap has been decided using the current 2019 Portsmouth Yardstick List. As this regatta is being held to encourage those new to the sport, to compete alongside those with more experience we have decided to have the handicap rating of 1207 and above so everything from Laser 4.7 to RS Feva through to the common training boats Pico’s, Toppers, Teras are welcome to take part.
Entry fees have been kept deliberately low to encourage participation and we hope that we will see plenty of new faces, both out competing and joining us throughout the day in our club and for a BBQ afterwards weather permitting
Our youth members meet on a Saturday afternoon from April to the end of October. Our Bosun Kevin and our Youth Captain Sam make sure something happens whatever the weather.
On sailing days, the youth have Toppers and laser picos to get out on the water. The more experienced sailor can use the clubs Rs feva and try their hand at using a spinnaker. For the complete novice, the club’s wayfarer with an experienced helm can be used.
On stormy days fun can still be had body boarding in the surf and on the still days paddle boarding and kayaking.
Safety equipment is available and we can advise on the best places to purchase without breaking the bank.
Some of our youth members are keen fishermen and fishing trips are also available depending on availability.
