We offer plenty of action-packed activities for young people, including sailing courses, powerboating, kayaking and basic navigation courses.
Our courses are all about having fun, making friends and enjoying the great outdoors under the supervision of our qualified instructors who will ensure that all this fun happens in a safe environment.
We invest in the young people who join us for activities by offering work experience, Duke of Edinburgh skills and service opportunities, assistant instructor training and many other transferable skills for the future. Youngsters can begin by learning to sail at the age 8, they can work their way through the RYA Youth Sailing Scheme, start powerboat training at the age of 12 and train to be an instructor at the age of 16 if they wish.
7th Wave is also the home of the Manx Youth Sailing Squad which provides high level race training and the opportunity to compete at UK events. The squad consists of Tera and Laser sailors, all of whom are invited to join the squad by the coaches. The Squad can boast some great results including two World Champions!
They won the National Team Trophy in 2009, and the Inland Trophy in 2010. This was the year that James Kelly won the RS Tera World Championship and Hannah Howitt finished first girl. In 2011 Greg Kelly finished 4th at the National, Inland and World Championships and Amie Shute finished 5th at the Worlds.
