Note: For more information on our training courses, both junior and adult, visit the training section.
The Junior Classes sailed at Budworth are Optimists, Mirrors and Toppers and the RS Feva.
All of which are RYA pathfinder classes for the regional and national squads, for those who are really bitten by the racing bug. Budworth has a long association with the RYA racing programmes.
The junior racing at Budworth focuses on fleet racing for the adopted classes on Saturday afternoons (the adult classes sail a handicap series on Saturdays).
There is also a separate junior start on Sundays and Wednesdays, when the juniors sail at the same time as the adult boats, but usually with a shorter course or fewer laps.
Junior Members have represented our club at regional, national and international level and we regularly host race training and open racing events.
Our commitment to deliver safe, effective, high quality of race training is recognised in our status as a RYA Volvo Champion Club, which we have held since 2001. This means that we have access to support and advice on all aspects of Junior racing and race training from the RYA's High Performance Manager and Regional Club coaches.
