On completion of Level 1, junior students may progress to Level 2 and should be ready to join the Silver Fleet in Saturday afternoon races. Joining the Silver Fleet is an excellent opportunity to expand and fine-tune sailing skills and to introduce young sailors to the thrills of racing in an exciting, safe and supervised environment. Sailing with the Silver Fleet provides a bridge for enthusiastic, young sailors to improve their skills, gain an understanding of basic racing principles and tactics, and eventually move into club-level competition. This is a chance to gain invaluable on-water-racing experience and confidence which will help young sailors move into the GSC Junior Section if they choose to.
