The plans for the 7-10 Years Group this Autumn are all about building more confidence on the water!

With the Junior Club (Saturday Sailing During the School Term) starting on Saturday the 16th of September we take a quick look at the plans for this terms 7-10 years group. The emphasis will be placed on building confidence and competence on the water in a variety of dinghies.

The oppies will feature regularly in the calendar with our instructors focussing on developing each student’s skills. To help with this goal we’re setting up mini-groups within the 7-10 years grouping, 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.

As the season progresses, we’ll introduce the Topper Dinghy and spend some time on our fleet of small keelboats, the squibs!

One the water, we’ll be focusing on developing each child’s ability to sail at all angles to the wind, how to rig the different dinghies and keelboats. Each activity will be structured around a fun task, so learning should flow naturally. The whole 7-10 years group instructing team want to make sure that the number one result of every Saturday’s programme is each child heading home talking about how fun it was!
