Coaching Opportunities @ Royal Freshwater Bay Yacht Club


Royal Freshwater Bay Yacht Club strives to provide to its members the highest level of coaching and delivery of coaching programs.  In line with the Club’s strategic plan, there is a focus to increase participation across all on-water activities. We see coaching at RFBYC as an important service to help us achieve this. 

We believe the caliber of our coaches is integral to the participation growth of our Junior and Youth Programs.  In addition, there are some goals as a State to perform on the National stage in the coming years.
