RQ Youth Squad Training
Advance Your Sailing
The RQ Youth Squad is a development program consisting of young sailors with expertise in various boat classes. This squad brings together diverse fleets, forming a cohesive team. Led by dedicated coaches, the RQ Youth Squad conducts regular group training sessions during school terms, guiding members towards competitive success at state, national, and even world levels. The program seamlessly integrates with Club Racing, offering ample opportunities for students to engage as part of the club. The squad operates year-round and includes a specialized Green Fleet for beginners starting their racing journey.
The Green Fleet program is tailored for novice sailors, featuring dedicated coaching and a distinct curriculum. It serves as the natural progression following Tackers 3 or Start Sailing 1 and 2 courses. Within this framework, coaches focus on honing strategy and refining racing abilities, thereby facilitating substantial skill enhancement and fostering greater self-reliance on the water. Green Fleet operates in both Optimists and Quests, offering boat hire options to newcomers, ensuring accessibility for all aspiring sailors.
