RYA Young Sailors Scheme - Start Sailing Stages 1&2, Stage 3


Youth Training

The junior sailing courses - J1 and J2 (Stage 1 & 2) are intended to provide a brief and enjoyable taste of dinghy sailing - safely. The courses are very much geared to individual progress and ability, with the emphasis on having fun whilst you learn. After the basics of sailing have been established, a few games and exercises on the water will be organised for you. You will be sailing in Optimist and Topper dinghies which are ideally suited for novice junior sailors. Following the J1 and J2 courses, students will be invited to attend the 2nd Junior Squad weekend at SHSC on June 7/8th, giving you and your parents the chance to see what opportunities exist for additional coaching and sailing within the club environment. A great way to develop both your sailing skills and new friendships.

Youth Sailing Scheme

Buoyancy aids are provided. Sensible 'old' clothes should be worn whilst sailing, and please bring a change of clothes. Alternatively, the Sailing School has a range of appropriate wet-suits and spray-tops available. An ability to swim 25 metres is a prerequisite of the course.
