Youth Training & Learn to Sail

The Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron’s Mastercard Youth Training Programme (YTP) is an intensive sail training programme for young sailors in a disciplined environment. This programme has long been regarded globally as a leader in Youth Training and is the country’s most comprehensive, advanced keelboat programme, a large number of graduates from YTP go onto representing NZ at The Ocean Race or America’s Cup level. Our Learn to Sail programme is NZ’s leading adult learn to sail programme with the aim to increase participation in the sport of sailing and to enable participants to feel more safe around the water. These programmes also encourage participants to become members of the club.

Our vision: Is to have a long term fund in place that ensures these programmes are well resourced and remain viable well into the future.
