Become a Race Cadet and get inspired to have a go at dinghy racing with the help of some of the Island’s top dinghy coaches.
It is perfect for anyone with at least the RYA Stage 3 certificate and offers plenty of time on the water to refine sailing techniques, build confidence and have great fun getting competitive. There are loads of opportunities to join Clubs on the Island and to take part in racing events, our Race Academy gives sailors all the skills and knowledge they need to go on to compete at Club and Squad level.
Successful stories from our Race Cadets include Ealish Green who is now racing Toppers at National level. Tom Whitbread, Charlie Whitbread, Henry Hotchkiss and Peter Cope were all invited to join the 2016 Manx Youth Sailing Squad. Gwen Thornton and Georgia Harding represented the Buchan School at the IAPS Regatta finishing 21st in a 54 strong Pico fleet at Weymouth.
Race Academy consists of four Saturdays of race training. Sailors get maximum benefit from 7th Wave Academy by attending all four days, but if you can’t make all the dates please join us for the ones you can. The fee is £60 per day or £200 if all four days are booked. Dates are 6 May, 15 July, 5 August, 2 September.
