Junior Training Course - July

29th - 31 July

We provide courses for children aged 7 to 16 years, covering complete beginners to very experienced sailors. The courses are open to children of club members, and also to non-club members. Our training is in accordance with the RYA Youth Sailing Scheme and will be in Optimist, Pico, Cadet or Laser dinghies (depending on age / size of sailor). This booking is for a Stage 1 Beginner course which takes the children from complete beginner to give them the initial skills to sail a boat on their own around a simple course. There are usually at least three optimist groups (beginners, intermediate and racing) and at least one Pico or Laser group. The courses cover the junior RYA Stages 1-4 and Start Racing.

Our main aim is to have fun safely. All participants must be able to swim and be confident around others in the water. If there is severe weather we reserve the right to cancel, although this is very unlikely.

It is a course requirement that someone with parental responsibility is at the club all the time that the children are on the course. This is to ensure that all children are happy, fed and warm throughout the day and that we fulfil our child protection responsibilities.

Due to the popularity of the course it is advisable to book early. If you have any questions before booking please contact the Training team at
