Royal London Etchells Youth Academy
With the considerable support of Member and Etchells Class Captain, David Franks, and the RLYC Youth Charitable Trust, the Royal London Etchells Youth Academy was launched in 2016.
Trials are held each year and 3 Teams of 4 Sailors are selected to sail on a fully expensed International Etchells Class Yacht for the season and to have temporary Membership of the RLYC for the year.
2016 was a great success, with all those chosen, training and racing hard, and enjoying the opportunity to compete against some of the best Sailors in the World. Having the Nationals, European and the Etchells World International Sailing Regattas in Cowes during the year was a unique set of circumstances.
The successful Sailors will be announced shortly for 2017.
