RYANI has selected a group of young sailors to join its Youth Performance Programmes.

The sailors, aged from 12 to 17, will be supported along their sailing journey, in preparation for national and international competition.

RYANI Performance Manager James Farrell commented: "The Youth Performance Programme brings together the best youth sailors from all over Northern Ireland. Within a high performance environment they are offered challenges and a pathway to success.

"The programme focuses on developing boat handling and racing skills in the sailing weekends with additional onshore days developing, rules, metrology, psychology, fitness skills and event planning and preparation."

The programme runs over six training weekends and some additional days, which are delivered over the winter by RYANI's expert coaches.
