Youth Sailing


Not sure if the kids will enjoy sailing? 

We have regular hourly taster sessions. Try sailing, before splashing out on a full course.

Sailing tasters run from May to November

RYA Learn to Sail in two stages.
RYA Stage 1 is a 2 day course
RYA Stage 2 is a 3 day course

RYA Stage 1 is where it all begins and is scheduled over weekends as well as during the school holidays.

During the school holidays, both RYA Stages 1 and 2 can be completed over the period of 1 week.

Or if it better suits you or your child, you may split the the week over a period of time by completing RYA Stage 1; enjoy your new found hobby by getting out sailing and then complete RYA Stage 2 a few weeks later.


RYA Stage 1 and Stage 2 cover; basic understanding of how a boat sails, steering and handling the boat, launching and recovery, steering, parts of the boat, basic sailing.
