Since our founding in 2007, Torbay Youth Sailing Trust (TYST) has operated under the umbrella of Royal Torbay Yacht Club. Our aim is to provide the young people of Torbay access to sailing via affordable sailing training courses and low-cost equipment rental.

Our friendly and highly qualified instructors follow the Royal Yachting Association (RYA) syllabus, providing a widely recognised structure to our training courses. The safety of your children is paramount, all our instructors are DBS checked and trained in handling emergency situations. We aim to provide a positive learning environment for children of all ages and ability levels. Our low instructor to pupil ratio enables us to encourage learning at a pace appropriate for each individual child.

No equipment is required and all TYST courses come with free junior membership of Royal Torbay Yacht Club, allowing your child access to the RTYC Youth Sailing Programme once they have completed their training.

Torbay Youth Sailing Trust is a charity registered with the The Charity Commission, registration number 1123442.
