Sailing Courses for Kids

We have been able to re-open for courses, already all Youth Sailing Weeks are fully booked for the holidays.

Saturday Sessions are now available as full days on the water so everyone can get a decent bit of time on the water this summer. Please contact us to reserve places.

Race Academy Weekends will start from 8th August and Under 8s back afloat on 25 July.

Youth Sailing Weeks

During school holidays, our wildly popular Youth Sailing Weeks allow youngsters to work through the RYA Youth Sailing Scheme.  These weeks run from Monday to Friday, 10am to 5pm each day.  During these weeks each young sailor will take charge of their own dinghy, under the guidance of our instructors and safety crews. Completion of each stage of the RYA Youth Sailing Scheme will earn students a certificate.  We aim to ensure all students have plenty of fun and learn new skills in a safe environment.

Courses for beginners, intermediate and advanced sailors run each week during the school holidays. In the event of bad weather we have a full shore-based activity programme.

The course fee is £289 per person, which includes equipment hire, RYA Logbooks, certificates and hot drinks.

2020 Dates, weeks commencing: 25 May • 8 June • Summer Holidays weekly from 6 July through to September.


Saturday Sessions

Once sailors have completed RYA Stage 1 they can carry one sailing on a regular basis though our Saturday Sessions.  It’s about having fun, improving techniques and practising skills taught in the RYA scheme.  Youngsters can enjoy their favourite games, cruises round the bay, kayaking, catching up with friends and all the usual excitement while becoming independent and confident sailors in a range of weather conditions.

Sessions run every Saturday from 10am to 5pm (half day options may be available, contact the shop)  £70 per person per session.

 Under 8s Get Afloat sessions

First you have to row a little boat…. This season we are running four Saturday afternoon sessions for the under 8s, so for everyone that has watched older brothers and sisters enjoy our courses, this is your turn to have a go.  Sessions are all about developing confidence on the water and will include kayaking, rowing small boats, putting a sail up and going sailing and maybe a little adventure of exploration on one of our safety boats.  Most importantly sessions will be fun and super safe too 🙂

Fee £25 per person, per session, wetsuit and buoyancy aids are provided.

Session dates: 25 July, 1 August
