What’s Planned – Age Groups
As with the summer courses sailors are divided by age and then by experience, this ensures that they continue to be challenged and improve their sailing ability.
7 - 10 Years Age Group
Oppie sailing will be a central part of the planned activities, as the sailors begin to progress we will start to introduce them to the Toppers, a larger and faster boat. Trips to feed the local family of seals as well as plenty of fun and games are also planned.
11 - 14 Years Age Group
This term is designed to keep participants’ skill levels up during the school term while introducing them to new boats like the Laser Pico or the RS Feva. Trips aboard our 1720 Sportsyacht fleet are a key part of the calendar!
15+ Years Age Group
We will introduce members to the Topaz Magnos, Vibes and Laser Vago for spinnaker and trapeze training. The group will also spend time sailing our squib keelboats and 1720 Sportsyachts. The Junior Club is an excellent way to complete the Physical Recreation or Physical Skill section of the Gaisce President’s Award.
The cost per term is €335, which includes the use of all our equipment, wetsuits and complimentary hot chocolate on the colder days. Book both terms at the same time for the reduced price of €619!
We are delighted to be able to offer a one offer taster session for students that want to try out the club at €30. New members are welcome to join the Junior Club at any time throughout the year, fees are calculated at a pro rata basis.
