Summer Week 2 2024

5th - 9 August, 10:00 - 16:30

5 days of sailing for juniors where they will have fun sailing and learn/improve their sailing in the summer holidays.


The complete beginners courses, aimed at getting juniors sailing with assistance.

The Stage 1 will enable them to have fun on the water. Learning the basics of sailing to allow them to crew efficiently and tack the boat across the wind.

The Stage 2 will then enable them to helm and sail the boat on all points of sail competently under supervision.


Improver courses aimed at getting juniors sailing in single-handers and double-handers competently on their own.

The Stage 3 gives them the skills in a single-hander needed to get out on their own with the close eye of an instructor on a safety boat.

The Stage 4 improves those skills and competence so they are able to sail efficiently and safely in their own time outside a course.
