Sailing Courses for Kids

At present we are not able to run any sailing courses for juniors due to current COVID-19 restrictions. We are so sorry to disappoint all our young sailors who we know are so keen to get back out on the water. As soon as we have more information and guidance from the RYA we will give you an update. We are not taking bookings for any sailing courses, taster sessions or hire at this time.

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 10.30 – 12.30 starting on 9 May and continuing until the end of September and cost £25 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: 23 May • 27 June • 25 July • 22 August.
