Children & Youth Courses

Stage 1

Stage 1 is for those who have little or no sailing experience whatsoever. It provides a fun introduction to the sport of sailing, and will teach you basic techniques to control the boat.

Stage 2

This course is designed to lead on from Stage 1. You will start to learn the basic skills and improve on those techniques learnt in Stage 1.

Stage 3

Stage 3 carries on from the skills learnt on Stage 1 and 2 courses. It will teach you to sail both upwind and downwind more efficiently and work on improving tacking and gybing.

Stage 4

Stage 4 is the last module in the youth pathway before progressing onto the advanced modules shared with adults. It is for many the first chance to have a go in a double handed dinghy such as a Wayfarer and to practise the skills learnt on previous courses in a different type of boat. It's a great course which includes learning to solve problems when afloat.  

Junior Club Evenings

Our Junior Club Evenings are sessions which we run for Juniors and Youths who have some previous sailing experience, where they will be supervised and given hints and tips by an instructor - ideal for those wanting to practise skills learnt on a previous course.
