TEAM15

The RYA tell us more about their Team15 programme for young windsurfers.

RYA

Team15 (T15) is a windsurfing club revolution! Powered by the RYA, it’s a nationwide network of windsurfing clubs where young people aged 16 and under can get together to learn new wind-surfing skills and have a laugh with their mates on the water. Whatever your skill level, regular windsurfing sessions will improve your windsurfing ability very quickly. And if you’ve never tried it before, you’ll have the basics mastered in no time. From first time windsurfer to a relative expert, Team15 clubs welcome all levels.

Daisy: I started Team15 five years ago when I was eight years old. Having learned the basics at Aztec Watersports I used to go down with my friends from swimming. At the time we were using two-metre sails. After a year there I moved to Farmoor Reservoir in Oxford and joined Oxford Zoomers.
