HIGH PERFORMANCE TEAM



 The RCYC High Performance Team is a program for RCYC members who want to continue sailing after completing Junior Club. At its inception the objective of the team was to provide an intensive racing program for 17-24 year olds that allows them to further their racing skills. To this day we continue to achieve this goal.

In practical terms the program provides resources and support to RCYC members in order to allow them to achieve their own specific sailing/racing goals.  
The RCYC graciously supports the team through financial assistance, coaching, mentoring, winter training and fitness programs. Team members do not have to have already proven themselves on the racecourse. Our coaching staff just requires all team members to be committed to hard work.

The HPT has attracted over 80 new members since its inception. Team members have competed at the 2004, 2008 and 2012 Olympic Games. Currently the Team’s focus has shifted more towards the 17 and 18 year old age group with the goal of sending team members to Youth World Championships.
 
Currently the RCYC HPT supports a number of classes with program based training some of which are integrated with our Junior Race Teams. All supported classes are as follows:
 
C 420
Laser Radial
29er
49er FX
49er
Laser

 
We also can help develop programs for individuals or teams in other Olympic or youth classes as needed.
