Junior Better Sailing

Improve your sailing skills over 2 days of more fun, games and hopefully good weather. At the end of this course you should be able to get afloat and sail a dinghy under supervision, including all points of sail.

Our junior courses are focussed on having fun and developing confidence, life skills and your sailing ability. The courses follow the RYA Youth Sailing Scheme, but the focus is on personal development and enjoyment, not just getting the next certificate.
