Youth & junior’s sailing groups
We run a variety of groups specifically for our young members (aged 8 – 18) with all levels catered for. All groups are £2.50 with your own boat or £7.50 to hire a club boat.
On Friday evenings in the summer, we light a BBQ and the bar will be open, we welcome parents & siblings to come along and join in with the social aspect.
Friday Race Training
An introduction to racing and improvement training for children who enjoy competitive fun.
Racing starts at 6:30 with each race lasting around 20 minutes. We don’t take results as the focus is practice, picking up race tips and coaching to get round the course faster each time.
Children can go on to join our Get Racing sessions on the 1st Sunday of the summer months.
Owen’s Friday Fun Club
Friday night Club for juniors at an intermediate level (have completed RYA levels 3 and 4) wishing to gain experience and time on the water but without racing.
Please be rigged and ready for 6.30pm, meeting on the patio for briefing and sailing till water close.
Saturday Y&J Club
For beginners and improvers, both sessions are from 10.00 – 12:30. Please be rigged and ready on the patio for 10am, ready to launch at 10.30am.
We run the groups regardless of the weather and have a selection of onshore sailing related activities for poor weather weeks.
The Beginner group is all about being out on the water, getting used to the environment and having lots of fun. This session will normally involve a experienced sailor in each boat but basic understanding of sailing is required – RYA level 1 is required.
The Intermediate group is a much more focused session where the group as a whole is looking to consolidate and improve their sailing skills following the RYA scheme in their own or club boats. All participants should be stage 2 or above.
