Our RYA sailing instructors offer a structured first hour (optional), grouping children by ability, then returning the session back to water play after supper. There is safety boat cover at all times whilst the children are on the water.
We find the mixture between structure and play gives the ingredients to create robust, confident and competent young dinghy sailors.

Funday sailing is a new initiative to promote Sunday racing and increase the use of the club on a Sunday afternoon.
The third race, which is after lunch, will have a novice and junior start. The PRO will set a course this side of Jarvis point (closer to the club) so parents can see their children sailing and those who are more nervous will not have to sail off miles away.

The briefing will be at 1.30pm for a 1.48pm start time.
In addition, the training team if there is demand will be running formal RYA courses to improve sailing to enable more people to have the choice to race.
