Junior Holiday Week 

A week of fun and games during the school holidays. At the end of this course you should be able to get afloat and sail under supervision. This week is equivalent to a Splash Junior Activity Day, a Junior Start Sailing course and a Junior Better Sailing course.

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. 

 

Why Learn to Sail?

Learning to sail has many benefits for children:

  • An exciting new activity 

  • Spend time outdoors and in nature

  • Learn risk assessment skills in a safe environment

  • Develop confidence and independence, through freedom, adventure and challenge for all ages

  • Meet a wide variety of new friends with a common interest
