We are really excited to announce that Starcross YC has become an RYA OnBoard Club.

What is OnBoard, I hear you ask ..... Well, OnBoard is…

… RYA's children's sailing and windsurfing programme. It offers children the opportunity to try watersports through their local club or centre in a safe, fun and structured environment.

OnBoard is the RYA’s grassroots programme to get young people aged 8-18 into sailing and windsurfing and, nationally, since 2005 has introduced 750,000 young people to sailing. This figure is well on target to hit 1,000,000 soon.

OnBoard has been shown to develop six character attributes – these are:

  • Teamwork
  • Determination
  • Communication
  • Independence
  • Confidence
  • Creativity

What does this mean for the Club? The OnBoard status enables all of our instructors and helpers to access some great training and teaching resources. These can then be used for the benefit of all our young beginners and junior sailors throughout the Club.
