Youth Training Week 2018

For children over 8, Youth Training Week provides the ideal setting for beginners through to early racers.

Taking place in the summer half term, the atmosphere is busy and fun and it’s an ideal way to make friends. Many of our top teenage sailors honed their skills in Youth Training Week and now come back to train up the next generation. Our instructors are all overseen by a Senior Instructor.

Sailors must:

Be 8 years old or above

Provide their own boat or hire one of the club fleet.

Have fun, but also be well behaved, our instructors are trained to teach children to sail, they do not have years of classroom experience on child behaviour.

The groups are generally:

Tera and Oppi beginner, Tera and Oppi improver, Tera and Oppi start racing.  Some years, depending on number of children, and instructors available we have been able to offer a Feva beginner group.

All groups depend on number that sign up, so please register your interest on the doodle.

Costs: £160, includes lunch

Dates: Tuesday 29 May to Friday 1 June inclusive
