RYA Champion Club
West Kirby Sailing Club is proud to be part of the RYA Champion Club scheme. Over the years this has helped develop our junior racing fleets and has enabled many junior sailors from WKSC to carry on their sailing careers.
We have also welcomed many of the RYA Zone squads to WKSC to train during the cold winter months. They can also be assured of a warm welcome here in West Kirby.
RYA Champion Club Benefits
There are many continued benefits to being a RYA Champion Club, some of which include:
- Branding and “Centre of Excellence” Status for junior racing and race training – promotion by the RYA as an ideal choice of venue to take young sailors in order to get them started and develop their skills,
- Advice and Support from the RYA and your local High Performance Manager,
- RYA resourced coach support and coach mentoring – ‘free coaching days’
- Access to coaching resources,
- RYA Investment and support,
- Endorsement of Capital Bids,
- Free access to conferences and key speaker presentations.
The RYA Champion Club programme continues to be the foundation of the RYA Junior and Youth Racing Programme and thereby the bedrock of the British Olympic Sailing Team, hence we will continue to strive to offer relevant benefits to RYA Champion Clubs as and when they become available.
