Performance sits as one of our core values at RYANI. Be that club racing and training or elite level competition we strive to support and guide everyone along their own journey in the sport. Sailing can accommodate for all ages and abilities and be considered a sport for life.
Our Youth Performance Programme forms youth and junior pathways providing Northern Irish sailors with the opportunity to develop in competitive sailing on the international stage. We are funded by the Sport Northern Ireland and the RYANI coaching team maintains the highest standards possible for the sailors in the region.
Several of our sailors have gone on to represent their Nation in the Olympic Games and/or pursued a career within the sport demonstrating long term development as a critical factor in everyone we do.
