Green Fleet

SYC Junior Development Squad – Green Fleet Program 2018-2019

Green Fleet is the entry level Off-The-Beach (OTB) club coaching and introductory race program for young sailors who have successfully completed Tackers Squad Sailing Course or have been assessed by the Junior Development Squad Co-ordinator as sufficiently competent, and who wish to further advance their sailing to competition level.

The safe harbour of Sandringham Yacht Club (SYC) provides young sailors with the opportunity to extend their sailing experience and build confidence on the water. It’s a great way to meet new friends, practice sailing techniques and to develop an understanding of basic racing rules. Green Fleet is designed to introduce sailors and their families to racing and to what it means to be part of the Sandringham Yacht Club community in a fun and simple way.
