Youth and Junior Training

Youth and junior training is geared towards  Optimists from about age eight, to larger single-handed and two-handed boats.

In the summer training is organised on Saturday mornings from just after Easter until late October. It is aimed at sailors from total beginners (minimum eight years/turning eight years in the current season) up to those interested in improving their sailing, including racing skills. Occasional short courses are organised during school holidays depending on demand.

Winter training between November and Easter is arranged for more experienced sailors.

Our aim is to help sailors develop skills and confidence to improve their sailing ability and apply racing tactics; to have fun and learn in a safe environment.
