2005 sees the introduction of the revised RYA Youth Sailing Scheme. The previous Scheme was extremely popular, and the new version incorporates many of its strengths, whilst being simpler and more modern. The G11 Logbook has been redesigned and includes some background information on sailing.
The new Youth Sailing Scheme has four stages, preceded by an optional taster certificate. After learning to sail single and double handed boats, sailors will move on to the National Sailing Scheme advanced modules of their choice.

Stage 1 remains substantially the same as before but Stage 2 is fractionally more advanced than before. Stage 3 is now easier and less physical, and can be considered a direct equivalent to Level 2 in the National Sailing Scheme without taking Stage 4.

The new Stage 4 covers double handed boats, and includes crewing skills. It has been introduced to provide effective progression into the National Sailing Scheme, to emphasise the role of the crew and to provide a realistic further certificated step. Young people who have completed Stages 1 to 3 in crewed dinghies may possibly choose to go from Stage 3 to the National Sailing Scheme.

Young people learning to race can use the 'Start Racing' course in the National Sailing Scheme. This will be revised shortly to make it more appealing, without any radical change in content. Club Racing Coaches are therefore invited to run this course in RYA affiliated clubs instead of the old Racing Red Badge and further information on coaching progression will be available in the Racing section of the website.

The full syllabus for the revised Scheme can be found in the new G11/04 , available
