Junior Improver & Racer

A great way to improve your sailing and give you a gentle introduction to club racing

Improve your sailing

For Junior members, we offer a range of opportunities to improve skills and to get the best out of their boating activity in a relaxed and informal environment. There are of course our every popular Friday Night Sessions when junior sailors often come down to practise their skills with their friends.

Juniors can sail-race or cruise whenever there is safety provided

In 2024 we will offer further options dependent on experience and aims:

Start Racing (RYA Certificated Course)

Looking to work up the RYA ladder of achievements then the Start Racing course may be for you.

This course takes you through the fundamentals of getting off the start line and around the course, introducing the basic skills needed to enter your first race or have fun with friends.

This course will be run on a modular basis meaning you can register and pay for the course and complete it over a number of sessions, finally achieving all of the objectives and gaining your Start Racing RYA certificate. 

Booking is a 2 stage process.  Before you start check that there are tickets still available at the bottom of this page.

Once you have checked please complete this form. And then purchase a ticket at the bottom of the page.

Please contact  Becky Priest if you have any questions.
