Give your child a skill for life and join in the fun on our Easter Camp. Our courses will entertain, challenge and stimulate your children as they learn how to master a sailing dinghy afloat – and have fun along the way.

Course Structure

Students are assigned to groups according to their age, as years of experience has taught us that the children get the most out of the course when training with their peers. Within their age groups, students are sub divided according to their experience.

We provide all essential gear for the course, boats, buoyancy aids, and wetsuits. In addition, our instructors are very experienced, we have a clubhouse facility with changing rooms and we are fully insured. We have an excellent safety record and pride ourselves on our superb reputation.

Arrive in Wetsuits
This avoids all the trouble that younger students in particular have getting into their wetsuits on their own.  Please note, students are welcome to shower and change at the end of each daily session.

Wetsuits are provided to borrow for the the length of the camp, they can be collected the week before, but must be returned on the last day.

Within the age groups we divide the children based on their experience. This is completed after registration on the first day by the instructors.

Yes, so long as they are within the same age group. Just after registration on the first morning the instructors will divide the children into groups. It’s important that chidlren ask to go with their friends at this point. Please note that in the case of friends being at different levels of experience, we will likely have to move the more advanced child to the group with the less advanced friend. The instructors will still offer coaching based on each child’s experience level.

No, but they do be relatively water confident. They will of course be wearing a buoyancy aid (dinghy sailing version of lifejacket) when on or near the water.

The previous discount system was established in response the 2008 recession. To limit the price increase we had to make this year, we have decided to remove the discount structure. We have faced substantial cost increases since the beginning of the pandemic and it was not longer sustainable to run on this basis.
