Open Pathway Training for Lasers and Toppers
The RYANI Open Pathway Training (OPT) is open to all Northern Irish sailors under the age of 16 in Topper, Optimist and Laser 4.7 classes. Training may also be provided for U19s in the Laser class
It is aimed primarily at those sailors who wish to develop their racing skills with a Squad coach in order to help them gain a good understanding of racing within the class and to go on to compete at open class events and the RYANI Youth Championships.
Some of the Open Pathway Training Days are planned around Topper Class Association Traveller dates. Sailors should be at RYA Start Racing level and be able to competently sail around a triangular course in a force 3 and stronger.
