Juniors

We have a thriving Junior Club of young sailors aged 8 and over who have completed their initial RYA junior sailing course. The Junior Club meets regularly on summer Sunday afternoons where fun filled sessions are supervised by RYA qualified instructors and include a mixture of training, games and racing.

Junior Club

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.
