RRYC will again run our highly successful summer camps in 2023.   The sailing camps are a great opportunity to introduce young people to the delights of sailing.  Our programs are designed to be fun, to provide instruction and safe on-the-water opportunities for your child so that they can learn, gain confidence and sail.

This year we intend to run four programs.  As of today 12 June 2023 we have spaces available, please contact asap if you wish to have a youngster participate.  Places are available for children of non-members.

June 26-30       Spaces available
July 3-7            Full- wait list

Jul 31 - Aug 4   1 space available
Aug 7 - Aug 11 Spaces available




Participants are grouped by age, experience and skill level.  We accept participants from ages 6 through to 18.  Throughout each program we have a primary focus on safety.  Participants will learn the fundamentals of safety on the water, learn how to rig a sail boat and the fundamentals of boat handling.    Our young sailors initially learn to sail in an Opti and then progress to a Sunfish. Depending on prior experience participants may get to sail the club 420’s.  The programs are run from the RRYC clubhouse and utilize the club facilities for classroom and pool activity with sailing in Carters Creek.


Fees: Junior Members/ Children & Grand Children of Members $300
         Non-member children $350
