CYCA Women’s Training Program (WTP)

The CYCA Women’s Training Program (WTP) is a new initiative to introduce and develop the skills necessary to compete in other CYCA sailing events. The course combines both on and off water training over the 18 – 19 March 2023. 

The course is created to place an emphasis on building sailors experiences with asymmetrical spinnakers, and to provide a safe and welcoming platform for participants to enhance their capabilities, build confidence and develop skills on the water.

The course will be conducted on the Youth Sailing Academy’s fleet of Elliott 7m keelboats.
