WYSA organise training for young people under the age of 19 who have achieved RYA Stage 3 and would like to improve their sailing. Opportunities with WYSA include joining the early season training, followed by Saturday afternoon training during the spring, summer and autumn. These sessions will offer the opportunity to refresh rusty skills and learn new skills in either seamanship or racing. Sailors who would like to race will have opportunities to take part in a variety of Topper, RYA and NSSA events away from Aztec Upton Warren. WYSA sailors are given automatic membership of Upton Warren Sailing Club (just need to complete a contact form) and are encouraged to take part in UWSC sessions, either cruising or racing. Sailors who are 16 years old, who have advanced sailing skills, may choose to do RYA Instructor training.
To take part in WYSA sessions, sailors must be members of WYSA, through WebCollect with membership subscription costing £5 per sailor each year (from 1st January to 31 December). Once sailors are members of WYSA they are able to book to take part in WYSA events. Look at the benefits of becoming a member of WYSA by reading the information page “Why join WYSA (Worcestershire Youth Sailing Association)”.
