RYA invitational girls training, October

17 July 2006

RYA WindsurfingThe RYA is investing in a weekend of multi-class training which if successful, and resource permitting, will evolve into a comprehensive programme for the future in order to create a lasting mental shift towards performance equality.

Following the success of the girl's weekends run by some of the classes, the RYA is hosting the first invitational girls training for all of the pathway recognized junior classes on the 21st & 22nd October 2006 at Weymouth & Portland National Sailing Academy.

This will add to the excellent work done in-class by taking in the cross-class dimension. The weekend will focus both on sailing and social skills to help the girls compete successfully in our sport, now and in future years.

While there has been a substantial increase in the participation and quality of girls in RYA Junior Squads over recent years, the RYA is committed increasing the number of girls who compete regularly at the top of our Junior, Youth and Olympic classes.
