Women at the Helm 2024 – May 25 & 26

Women at the Helm 2024 – May 25 & 26

SIA Partners and the National Yacht Club are delighted to host the Women At The Helm 2024 regatta on May 25th & 26th.  The event will include racing as well as other activities both on and off the water and we would encourage friends, family, sailors and non-sailors to come down to the club over this busy weekend.



The inaugural WATH regatta was held in 2019 and was hosted by the NYC.  WATH is a sailing regatta with women helming dinghies and keelboats and encourages women who may not normally helm to step up and make the move from crew to helm over this weekend.  The event is open to all female helms from teens to seniors. Prizes will be awarded for Under-25s, over 60s, and by class, and includes the coveted prize of the Roy Family Perpetual Trophy for the best team performance.  2024 will be the third occasion that the NYC will host the WATH regatta, reinforcing the Club’s reputation as a supporter and promoter of women in sailing

The Junior Committee is happy to announce that the Summer Courses 2024 are now open for booking for all NYC members.

The booking will remain open until midnight on Monday 22 May 2024.

As previously advertised, we will be running the full suite of IS levels and are additionally offering some custom courses. Places will be allocated on a first-come/first-served basis. We intend to offer all courses published, but this will depend on demand and minimum numbers per course.

If you are unsure which course is right for your young sailor, you can check the ISA website for a description of the standard courses by clicking here: Dinghy, Keelboat & Catamaran Sailing   (List of courses under the Course Syllabi heading)

Feedback from parents has told us that demand for specific courses is hard to predict running into the summer. For this reason, we have decided that we will not cap the number of places per course at the point of booking. This will allow us to respond more flexibly to your needs and scale-up to meet demand where possible.

What this means for you is: If there has not been sufficient interest in a course you have booked or if a course has been oversubscribed, we will be in touch before 15 May 2024 (within 1 week of booking closing) to offer you an alternative course or a full refund.
