TRY (Training Regatta Youth) is Quebec’s largest annual youth-sailing regatta and hosted by the Pointe-Claire Yacht Club. An estimated 160 kids (from ages 8 to 18), come together for four days of high-level training and competition, and it’s a pipeline for the elite Quebec Games.
The TRY Regatta is where skills can develop quickly and exponentially in a high-caliber, supportive environment. Good racers can become great. Great racers can become exceptional. A training regatta is a rare kind of regatta, with more than just ruthless bow-to-bow combat. Half the time is devoted to racing; the other to training. With real-time instruction in a non-adversarial regatta setting, racers can immediately put into action what they learn from a roster of up to 20 coaches drawn from yacht clubs all over the Lac St-Louis region, Ottawa and Hudson, including Pointe-Claire Yacht Club, the Royal St-Lawrence Yacht Club, Beaconsfield Yacht Club and Baie d’Urfe Yacht Club.
