To coordinate, encourage and assist college students to participate in yachting, by providing the best coaching and facilities TRIYA can reasonably afford. As well as to promote further participation and development in all aspects of yachting and boating outside of TRIYA.
Over the past years, Tup Radford’s continued support has enabled this programme to continue with now 8 x 420 dinghies and two coach boats and a training shed at Evans Bay Yacht and Motor Boat Club. However with increasing costs, it is now difficult to expect one person’s generosity to cover all costs and now assistance of this worthwhile programme is required for its continued success.
Since 2003, TRIYA has given over 350 boys and girls from the Wellington Region the opportunity to learn to sail and participate in school sailing, club sailing, individual and team regional, national and international competition. This has been made possible through the generous support of a past sailor, Tup Radford, who initially purchased six secondary school boats. Over these past years his continued support has enabled this programme to run.
The Tup Radford Intercollegiate Yachting Academy (TRIYA) was the brain wave of a past pupil of Scots College, Tup Radford, for the purposes of providing a programme to give school aged pupils the opportunity to try sailing as a sport. Through his generous support, the initial six sailing dinghies and coach boat were purchased and a programme set up to deliver a learn to sail after school programme.
