The plans for the 11-14 Years Group this Autumn will ensure each student’s sailing progresses.

With the Junior Club starting on Saturday the 16th of September we take a quick look at the plans for this terms 11-14 years group. The emphasis will be placed on sailing development and fun!

We’ve introduced a new structure to the 11-14 years group, with dedicated instructors looking after sailors of different experience. The group will still operate as one unit, but each child will receive coaching specific to their sailing level.

Within this new structure we’ll be placing an emphasis on developing student’s skills in botj seamanship (advanced sailing manoeuvres, reefing afloat, anchoring, interpreting tidal and weather information) and racing areas. We’ll be on the lookout for new talent in the racing sphere who may benefit from a new winter racing programme that will be launched for the 11-14 years group later in the year.

Sailing is planned to take place on a wide variety of boats, including toppers, picos, fevas and on the 1720s and squibs when the weather gets a bit colder. All in all, it’s a term not to be missed!

Sailors from the Summer and new students alike are invited to join us on the water for a great season of sailing!
