News article:

At Manly Yacht Club there are two separate but complimentary junior sailing programs.  One is conducted by Manly Sailing and the other is managed directly by the club and is known as the MYC Juniors.

Manly Sailing
Manly Sailing is a commercial sailing school and runs courses for both adults and children.  The work horse of the juniors sailing program is the regular Saturday morning 8 week level 1 sailing classes as well as school holiday camps.  These are intensive courses and on completion the juniors are usually capable of handling a boat in light airs.

MYC Juniors
The MYC Juniors program is aimed at consolidating the skills learned from the Manly Sailing level 1 courses.  The program will run regular weekend sessions which will be anchored by a qualified and experienced instructor who is supported by parents.

The two programs tend to complement each other with junior sailors returning to Manly Sailing from time to time for courses and camps to train at higher levels up to level 5 and are always able to practice these skills when they return to the Club sailing program.
