This year the RYA may split the South Zone Squad across 2 separate locations for some sessions. This is to ensure that that they have manageable training group numbers to assist the sailors’ development, create a better performance environment and give them a wider variety of venues to use. This would consist of some training in tandem at separate venues and some run as combined training at the same venue. Squad splits would be based on the sailors’ selection ranking and individual needs.
This has been included in the Optimist Zone Squad Notice of Selection.
This is a new initiative for this year, and the details of how this will operate may need to be worked out once the Squad has been selected, and in conjunction with the sailors/parents/venues.
There will be an opportunity to ask questions and find out more at the Zone Championships.
