Recently introduced to the VCYC is the addition a junior sailing division. The committee have all agreed that the future of club and competitive sailing in Vanuatu is through full-time and dedicated training of Ni-Vanuatu and resident youth. 2015 marks the first ever National Junior Sailing Team participation in an international sailing event. The ISAF Youth Worlds is being held in Langkawi in December 2015. Two of our young sailors will be participating in this World Championship Event. We are currently in the process of raising funds to support the young sailors for this event and for many more future events.
Several sponsors have already stepped up to purchase new boats for the team to train on and or to make financial contributions to the Junior Team. We still need more support and more boats (Lasers) on the water, so if anyone is interested in contributing, please contact Paul Pettitt
