Junior training courses at SHSC Learn to sail in a safe friendly environment

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.

Junior Course Dates

Given the continuing covid-19 restrictions all Sailing Club training activities are on hold for the time being. However we are beginning to make plans for when lockdown eases. 

In 2021 we hope to run 2 combined Stage 1 & Stage 2 junior training courses.

It is possible that covid might force us to change our plans

All of our Stage 1 and 2 courses are open to both members and non-members.
