About The NE & Yorkshire Youth Traveller Series
The objective is to promote competitive racing events, friendship, quality sailing skills and personal growth. The series offers opportunity to young sailors in the region in all classes to sail against their peers on a handicap basis.
Experiencing a variety of sailing venues is a key element in developing high quality sailing skills that will last a lifetime. (Travelling is also an opportunity to make great friends who also last a lifetime).
The series is a supportive, inclusive opportunity for all to race, those at the front are competing in their chosen class at (inter)national level; those at the back may be venturing onto the race course for the first time.
All are welcome and the series view is that the peer support offered by this series out on the water and on-shore is invaluable and represents and celebrates the essence of our sport.

We're pleased to confirm that Sunderland YC will be hosting us for another 2 day event in September. This will co-incide with the RS Tera Northern Championships. RS Tera sailors can enter this event via the the specific entry on the entry form.
We're also delighted to be welcoming the 29er fleet at Sunderland as part of their 29er Northern Series. 29er sailors can enter this event via the specific entry on the entry form.
We welcome event sharing with other classes or club events, as this reduces host club volunteer load and often enables parents & supporters to sail as well!
We will not be holding an event on Saturday 6 May as this is King Charles' coronation & offers a bank holiday weekend for family activities
We don't hold events on the May bank holidays as they tend to clash with national youth & junior events, Likewise, we won't hold an event on 17/18 June as this is the Regional Junior Champs weekend.
We break for the summer school holiday as so many large events happen during this time. We encourage sailors to use the school holiday opportunity to attend larger events and family sailing weeks.
