We have a thriving Junior Club consisting of young sailors aged 8 who have completed an RYA Youth Sailing Scheme Stage 1 or above. (For those looking to learn to sail you will find details of courses open to Juniors under Training).
We meet approximately once a month on a Sunday afternoon (see Club calendar for dates). These supervised sessions are run by RYA qualified instructors with the help of assistants and include a mixture of training, games and racing.
Youngsters can either sail in their own boat or use a Club boat – we currently have Toppers, Optimists and Picos.
The aims of Junior Club are:
- to have fun and make new friends
- to build on and improve sailing skills
- to have an opportunity to sail different types of boats
- to have an introduction to racing
There is no charge for Junior Club (which is only open to Club members) and the usual charge for hiring a Club boat is waived.
Please note that a parent must remain at the Club and be available to help out either on the water or assist with rigging and de-rigging boats.
