Saturday afternoons: dates 2018


These sessions normally coincide with Family Sailing Days – see the club e.calendar for more details and times


The following dates are Buccaneer group sessions which are aimed at all levels from beginners to experts, for those under 16s. The focus of the session is safety and fun on the water, encouraging learning through the use of interaction and games. The sessions will range from knowing how to rig, derig and look after the boats, and the basics of boat handling through to sailing a triangular course. Kayleigh Garrett will run these sessions with the help of competent club members and more experienced Youth and Buccaneer members.

23rd June, 21st July, 18th August, 15th September


The following dates are Youth group sessions, supervised by Olly Anderson, are aimed at sailors who can already complete a triangular course and designed to develop seamanship and racing skill, for those under 19.

9th June, 7th July, 4th August, 1st September


You can use your own dinghy or else you can use one of the club dinghies, normally Optimists or Toppers. During Saturday afternoons, Kayleigh and her helpers, will check how you are getting on and will be assessing you against the various skills required by the RYA for their Levels 1 and 2. She will award HSC Competence Certificates to those that achieve the sufficient levels. A goodr reason to attend Junior Pot Night which celebrates everyone’s achievements.


For those of you that are gaining confidence and competence, we hope to be able to give you more individual training in the basics of racing which will help you enjoy the Friday evening race sessions.


Saturdays are about making friends and having a good time whilst also learning what fun you can have on the water by increasing your skills and confidence.  You can progress as slowly or as quickly as you want and there is no pressure to do anything you do not want to do.

So do come and join in...


Even if your parents don’t sail, they can learn a lot as well !
