Children from the age of 8 to 16 at the Club can take part in RYA Youth Training. During the Spring to Autumn sailing season we offer courses from beginner Stage 1 to advanced Stage 4 courses. Plus we also run Seamanship and Performance Sailing courses.
We are a founder member of the JETS scheme, which consists of five clubs around the South of England coming together with a view to improving and honing the race skills of junior sailors. A number of our Cadets over the years have successfully taken part and refined their competitive skills over the Winter period in Topper class dinghies.
During the Winter we also run Cadet Club which is open to all of our children from age 5 upwards. The aim of Cadet Club is to keep the camaraderie built up over the previous sailing season, and to reinforce the sailing knowledge gained, in a fun way.
Further, as part of the OnBoard scheme, we offer local schools the opportunity for children who haven't yet experienced sailing to have a go and achieve their Stage 1. If you are interested in your school taking part please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
