Youth Activity Courses

+Youth Sailing

Young sailors can try sailing by joining our RYA OnBoard Club where they can try a taster session on a Saturday morning and then move on to joining the Club and sailing regularly throughout the season. Club membership will help them progress through the RYA Youth Sailing Scheme and gain confidence and experience.  

We offer RYA Youth Sailing Scheme Stage 1 and 2 courses throughout the season - these two day courses are closely aligned to the adult sailing scheme but with more emphasis on fun and games. 

For more advanced youngsters, RYA Stage 3 and 4 can be taken as personal tuition at any time to suit, or through membership of our OnBoard Club.
