2.0 joins RNZYS Performance Programme
This season we're excited to announce that we have joined the RNZYS' world renowned Performance Programme (PP).
"The Performance Programme provides a pathway for our top young sailors who have the qualities to be amongst the World’s finest, to keep up with global trends. Our RNZYS PP sailors race at various youth and open events all around the world and have had incredible successes."
What does this mean for us? The RNZYS PP provides us with access to train on the Squadron's fleet of Elliott 7's and two Foiling Nacra 20s. Along with coaching from previous World Match Race Tour helms such as Reuben Corbbett and Laurie Jury. We feel priviledge to be a part of such an elite Programme with members and graduates achieving the following; 2017 saw six PP members selected to compete in the Youth Americas Cup, along with great performances in 2018 in the Red Bull Foiling Generation and GC32 Extreme Sailing Series. Currently the PP has 3 skippers ranked inside the top 10 on the Open and Women Match Race World Rankings.
