We run training sessions on Sunday mornings in 6 week blocks in May/June and Sept/October, sailing in Optimists or Toppers.
There are three groups:
Beginners: For those who are new to sailing or who have sailed a few times and want to build their confidence and basic boat handling skills (RYA level 1-2).
Progressors: For children who can sail a triangular course confidently (including sailing upwind and gybing) and who wish to develop more advanced boat handling skills (RYA level 3-4). Attendees are also encouraged to practice outside of the training sessions.
Racers group: For competent sailors who want to progress to racing. Training sessions are followed by participation in the first race on Sunday morning (with coach support on the water). You are encouraged to join in other club racing too – on Saturday and Sunday afternoons and Wednesday evenings.
The Beginners and Progressor groups are normally over subscribed, those attending need to be members of the club and at least one parent must either be a full member or a guardian member of the club. Details on membership can be found here. Membership details
In addition, we have social events throughout the year, including our renowned Summer Party and Camp Over, always popular! Again details, once confirmed, will be posted on this website and in the clubhouse.
