After a strange year we’re happy to re-introduce a familiar activity, the Junior Club, Saturday Sailing during the school term, from September this year.
Like our Summer courses, we’ll be operating strictly within the parameters from Government, Sports Ireland and Irish Sailing. While the exact format of the Junior Club activity on the water may vary, the main tenants of our approach will be as follows:
- Outside activity, with absolutely minimal indoor time
- Individual or “pod” sailing and boating
- Strong hand hygiene, respiratory hygiene and social distancing (which luckily sailing and boating provides for with relative ease).
We’re equally conscious that many may be feeling the effects of the last couple of months in their pockets, so rather than charging one large lump sum, we’re breaking the two terms into even smaller instalments, each covering about a month at a time.
Who should join in?
Everyone is welcome. The programme is specifically designed with students from our Summer courses and past Junior Club members in mind, so some sailing experience is certainly desirable, but not essential.
