RTYC is now a significant junior learning and training club as well as running a regular junior race fleet. Fevas, Cadets race regularly and new sailors now start in the Tera or learn in our Qba fleet.
The progression dinghy from Fevas will now be run in RS 200 class for those moving up from the junior level. At the same time the club has declared the RS 400 as the club senior dinghy.
Any PY dinghy is allowed entry but from 2014, the club has identified the RS 200 for Torbay
This is now a mixed fleet of small cruisers and dayboats and some specialist classes such as Folkboats. For 2014 we will be using a progressive based handicap and will be an ideal basis for any small
cruiser or inexperienced Dayboat racer to get racing.
RTYC has a strong reputation in the sportboat racing having been the centre for the Melges 24, and after the SB3 (now SB20) racing with both worlds and nationals being staged from the club in the past. SB20 nationals where held here in 2014
Currently we have a fleet of boats ranging from 25ft up to 40 ft racing regularly. This fleet also races away from the bay and RTYC also runs the Offshore Week which has been a popular event for some 21 years when we race to Channel Islands then around North France ports . Great event both in terms of sailing and social activity
