Red Ribbon Training Club and Red Ribbon Regatta

Contact: Lana Kelsey 

This group, organised by the Youth Committee and Melvyn Cooper Sailing, was developed to help build children’s confidence and to make the transition from the lagoon to West Mud a little easier.

Melvyn tailors the sessions to suit the children’s abilities.

Children need to be ready to leave the lagoon, preferably with RYA stage 2 or similar experience.

If their confidence needs bolstering or they are struggling to make the next step, the Red Ribbon Training Club is ideal.

The Red Ribbon Regatta in 2021 is a one-day mini event tailored to new racers, run on West Mud, during the best tides.

It’s a wonderful introduction to racing, a perfect preparation for Bronze Fleet at Youth Race Week.

All run by parents of those entered, so a perfect opportunity to get stuck in!
