Junior Sailing Club

Junior Sailing Club in 2018

JSC is for children in school year 3 and above to develop their sailing skills and to learn to start racing. We are currently planning the details for 2018 and will update this page in due course. In 2018 the Club expects to divide Junior Sailing Club into two parts – one part for beginners and a second part for children who can already sail but have never raced and want to learn. The emphasis will be on learning through fun with games, teamwork, shore activities and mini races. Children will sail their own dinghies – all classes are welcome – but if they don’t have a boat we will still aim get them sailing by pairing them with other sailors e.g. Cadets and/or using the Club’s boats. Each session will be run by experienced volunteers and safety cover will be provided. Parents will be expected to stay at the Club and make themselves available to help out e.g. on the safety boats or in the galley. There will be nine sessions on Saturday mornings between May and September … the dates are listed below and are in the Club’s 2018 Programme. Each session will start at 8.30am with breakfast and finish at around midday. The cost will be £2 which includes breakfast. For the first few sessions children don’t need to be a Club member. Very important, children must bring suitable clothing, footwear and a buoyancy aid.
