Junior Squad Coaching and Race Training

Junior SquadWe run a series of structured weekend camps (12 noon Saturday to 12 noon Sunday) over the year for junior club members who have achieved level 1 sailing skills. Up to 50 juniors come along each weekend aged from 8‐16 sailing Optimists, Toppers, Fevas & 405s.

Our juniors work towards achieving RYA awards and are coached by qualified instructors in groups by ability. Of course they have great fun developing their sailing skills with their friends too! Parents are asked to join in too, we always needs lots of help with the onshore and offshore activities.

Club instructors give their time freely and with parental support we are able to keep costs to a minimum. Prices are shown below and include a 'Sailors supper' on Saturday and breakfast on Sunday morning.
