Children’s Sailing

Junior Club – Saturday Sailing During the School Term – New members welcome to join at any stage

Students from the summer courses and new sailors alike are invited to continue sailing throughout the school term. The Junior Club is an excellent way to practice and improve upon the skills learnt during the summer months and it’s also a great way to keep in touch with the friends made during the summer courses. The club runs from either 10am to 1pm or 2pm to 5pm. Learn more…
