More Info

We are a volunteer run organisation, which provides racing and training for school age sailors throughout the County of Derbyshire.
Derbyshire Youth Sailing (DYS) is all about having fun, making new long term friends and taking that next step in developing your sailing skills outside of your club environment. We do this through a series of races events (11 in total) and training days at each of our Derbyshire sailing clubs, plus we attend National events throughout the year.
DYS was formed in 2000 to ensure youth sailing continued in Derbyshire when school sailing came to an end. We are affiliated to the RYA and the NSSA (National Schools Sailing Association), are part of DSSA (Derbyshire Schools Sports Association) and the official body in Derbyshire for awarding County Colours in Sailing.
All sailors aged 18 and under who are members of a Derbyshire club, attend a Derbyshire school or live in Derbyshire are automatically members of DYS. There is no joining fee. All you have to do is come along to any of our events or training and start joining in the fun. You don’t have to own your own boat or transport a boat as boats are available to borrow at the different venues.
Check out our website www.dysailing.org for more information, an upto date calender and details of how to register for each event.
