2022 Junior Training Programme

2022 Junior Training Programme

The Club offers Junior Dinghy Training to Club members aged between 8 and 16, from complete beginners to advanced youth racing. Training covers the RYA syllabus and takes place on Saturday mornings from 08:30 am to midday from 30th April until 16th July 2022, with the exception of 4th June when we break for half term/extended bank holiday weekend.

Due to its increasing popularity, there is a limit to the number of places. Places are allocated on a first come, first served basis. Once signed up we ask you to prioritise attendance on Saturdays. If you become unable to attend regularly, we reserve the right to re-allocate your place to someone who can attend the majority of the weekly sessions.

Once accepted onto the training programme you will be asked to confirm your attendance via the Club website each week. This is so we know how many people to expect and so that we can organise appropriate safety cover and instruction. At least one parent or guardian must accompany their child/children and remain on site throughout each training session.

Junior training Kit List

All trainees must be equipped with suitable clothing including full length wetsuit, neoprene/sailing boots, gloves, hat and buoyancy aid. A full recommended kit list can be downloaded here.. In hot weather sun cream must be applied.

Junior Training Briefing

Before attending Junior Training we ask all parents to read the Welcome to Junior Sailing.

Volunteering: How you can make junior training a success

It's people that make our Club what it is. We can't wait to hear the happy voices of our kids as they leap in and out of boats. That's why we do this.

We do need everyone's help to make sure junior training happens safely and with everyone playing their part in contributing to the fun. We all have a role to play.

There are lots of ways to get involved from helping on a safety boat (training is provided) to making coffee or flapjacks to ensure everyone (parents and kids) stay well fuelled for fun, through to mopping up the sand and water in the changing rooms.

You can volunteer for Junior Training Duties on the Club Roster or read more about Saturday Training Volunteering Roles.

Junior training is run on a voluntary basis and is free of charge, but parents will be expected to contribute their time and help - for example, helping launch and recover boats on the beach. A one off £16 charge will be made in the first year to cover the cost of log books and certificates.
