Children’s Sailing

The success of our popular children’s programmes is rooted in the dynamic of dividing children into groups of their own age bracket and secondly, within these groups, children are divided according to their sailing experience. All experience levels are catered for, and every child will be challenged within their level of ability.

Children are taught in a pressure-free, relaxed and fun environment.  Choose from Junior Club on Saturdays, Sea Explorers, Easter and Summer Camps.

Age Groups
4-6 Years | 7-10 Years | 11-14 Years | 15-17 Years
