Junior Sailing Club in 2017
Junior Sailing Club is for children in school year 3 and above to develop their sailing skills and to gain the confidence to start racing should they want to. 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 are ten sessions on Saturday mornings between May and September … the dates are in the Club’s 2017 Programme. Each one 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. Children must bring suitable clothing, footwear and a buoyancy aid. Also we’ll be operating a simple booking system (to reserve your child’s place email firstname.lastname@example.org or 07585 770792) to make sure we have the right number of boats and helpers.
