Junior Beginner and Improver Sessions » Junior Beginner and Improver Sessions Provisional
What to expect:
These two hour sessions aim to give the budding sailors a start in their sailing life, and those with a little more experience the chance to improve. Time will be spent on land and on the water, adapting to suit the conditions of the day, with both theory and practice.
Sailors will be work towards RYA Youth Sailing Scheme Certification (hence the slightly higher cost)
The groups will be organised at a ratio of one instructor / assistant instructor to six beginners. We may sail an assortment of dinghies and the coaches may be in a power boat alongside the sailing boats and sailors may take it in turns to swap in and out of boats.
Sailors will need the following equipment:
- Wetsuit or drysuit
- Wetsuit boots or old trainers that can get wet
- Hat, either to keep you warm or to keep the sun off
- Waterproof clothing to change into as theory may be outside in the weather
Boats and life jackets will/can be provided. (Note: sometimes second hand kit is available on the club website 'For Sale' pages.)
Changing rooms are now open.
Please arrive 30 minutes prior to your selected session ready to go on the water. Sailors will need to help rig / de-rig boats before and after their session. This is part of the RYA Sylabus.
