Wrapping up for winter
That’s all folks…. 2022 has been a great season, sunshine, warmth, wind and a lot of time spent on the water.
It has been great to reunite the team after the COVID years, we have shared much laughter and fun times. Lots and lots of youngsters have learned to sail and many more have returned to continue to progress and develop their sailing skills.
We have exciting plans for 2023 which include an RYA Dinghy Instructor course in July, Race Academy weekends, #This Girl Can sessions, Youth Sailing Weeks, kayak and paddleboard hire and much much more.

Youth Sailing Weeks – back again in 2023!
Youth Sailing Weeks run every week throughout the school holidays from the beginning of July to the end of August.
These weeks are a great way to learn to sail, make new friends and enjoy nature’s playground right here in Port Erin. The minimum age is 8 years old. We provide all the equipment required and RYA certificates and logbooks.
For beginners we start with the RYA Stage 1 course, sailors can then continue to progress through the RYA Scheme to Stages 2, 3, 4 and then the Advanced courses. Many of our sailors go on to become RYA Dinghy Instructors opening opportunities to work at 7th Wave or around the world. For those that like to race you can follow in the footsteps of 7th Wave sailors who have joined the Manx Youth Sailing Squad and gone on to become GBR Squad sailors and even World Champions!
