Hayling Winter Training Squads

The HISC classes run hugely successful Winter Youth Squad training programmes.

It is available for skilled young sailors who want to improve their racing skills and practice throughout the winter. The quality of the coaching is very high and many successful international sailors have trained in the HISC Youth Training Squads.

The most active youth classes at HISC are the Optimist, RS Tera, RS Feva, and 29er, and each class has its own class captain who coordinates the training programmes.

The squad usually comprises of five training weekends to help the young sailors progress. The training season runs from October to March. The squads may vary from sailors transitioning to a new class all the way up to RYA Youth Squad sailors.

We believe that including everyone in the squad process builds a great team mentality and ensures friends for life.

Many of the coaches and assistant coaches are home grown from the HISC pathway system having achieved their RYA Race Coach certificates at the club. To be selected for these squads the sailors must show that they are committed to racing and training.
