RCYC Sailing Academy runs its sailing programs mostly on weekends and we participate in big regattas and other races. The Academy has seven variety of boats and are: 5 L26 boats, 1 Beneteau and 1 Lavranos 34 undertakes sailing training during weekends and regattas. The L26 design is believed to be conducive for beginners as the nature of it forces individual to be hands on all the times and enforces team work in many occasions. The Academy have more than 8 skippers and one senior instructor, who are fully qualified and with high pedigree of sailing.
Our training program takes place between 10 am to 3 pm both days on weekend, unless otherwise. The program has been very instrumental in developing and nurturing a raw talent of sailing and development of new skills, team work and sportsmanship amongst our students. We focus on ecology whereby kids learn about the importance of respecting the sea and builds a relationship with.
The boat Lavranos 34 (Archangel) is primarily to teach students Navigation Skills and offshore race respectively, hopefully Cape to Rio in January 2020. In essence the Academy will strive to have more youth involvement and imbued them with abundant amount of skills and open door for learning and growth.
We welcome all young sailors to join our academy.
