Junior Training

Let us teach your children the fantastic social healthy sport of sailing with our Junior Training

get kids involved in sailing

This health outdoor sport is great fun and helps build confidence and friendships as well as a fantastic new skill

Learn Something Every Day

This operates through courses over the year for 8 to 16 year olds. These RYA courses are open to members and non-members alike and usually take place over 4 days, covering the Start Sailing Stages 1 and 2 syllabus.

Those aged 16 and over are welcome to join the adult courses.

Typically 12 juniors per course are taught in the club optimists and toppers – single handed boats that have proved popular for junior sailors.

Wetsuits, buoyancy aids and spray tops are provided for the duration of the course.

The courses are great fun and once you have learnt the basis you can join lots of other Junior/Youth specific events where you can continue to improve your skills.

We have a high number of club boats and are able to offer both daily and annual boat hire for newly qualified sailors. Therefore there is no need to rush out and buy a boat to continue sailing.
