The Royal Dart Youth Sailing Trust The Royal Dart Youth Sailing Trust was set up in June 2016 as a legacy of the 150-year celebrations of the club. The charity aims to help young people to benefit from being able to sail (free of charge), especially those who might otherwise not have the opportunity. Many of them live within sight of the water but have little, if any, chance of ever getting out on it, far less of ever learning to sail for themselves. As well as supporting RDYC junior sailing activities, the Trust, therefore, aims to make it possible for many more local youngsters to benefit from the challenge of participating in water sports on the beautiful River Dart. For the last three years, the Trust has run School Weeks that


Members enjoy:

Training with RDYC We are an approved RYA training centre and our courses are open to both members and non-members. We aim to offer opportunities for all those who want to experience the fun of being on the river or out


last year helped just over 100 local year six children get a taste of sailing. Pupils from Dartmouth Academy, Kingswear, East Allington, Blackawton, St John’s Totnes, Galmpton and Stoke Fleming primary schools have all enjoyed training on our Teras, Visions and latterly the new Quest dinghies. It was particu- larly pleasing that the school children were taught mainly by older teenage RYA-qualified instructors who had successfully progressed through many years in our own RDYC-based Junior Sailing programme. For 2020, the local schools are clamouring for more places, so we are increasing the capacity for the Schools’ Weeks and are aiming to move the children from taster days up through the RYA qualifications. Indeed, Dartmouth Academy have found the sessions so helpful that they have asked us to introduce a Tuesday curriculum day for the summer term. Through the generosity of members, local residents and busi- nesses such as Rockfish, the Trust has been able to raise funds to purchase boats and train instructors. The Trust has no regular source of income other than fund raising. Whilst a Sport England grant and sponsorship by Rockfish restaurant last year were very important, so too were Gift-Aided donations from individual RDYC members and the fantastically well-supported auction of promises. If interested in donating to support our activities or to find out more about what we do and how you can help, please contact the Chair of the Trust, Ian McClelland by email - chair@rdyst.org
