Youth Sailing in 2022

A packed programme for the youth of the club this year. Alongside the weekly club training, there are invitations to special events, RYA courses, opportunities to meet other young sailors in the region plus Medway Yacht Club are hosting two youth events for the region, one in July and one in September.

Young members can take advantage of our brand-new this season club fleet of RS Zests dinghies to learn to sail. As well as Zests the club have Fevas, Oppies, Toppers and Lasers.
