Youth Sailing Club

RWYC Youth Sailing Club is intended for children aged 8 to 16 year old and no previous experience is necessary. They should however, be confident in water!

Training is from RYA approved Instructors and includes:

  • Safety on and off the water
  • Theory of sailing
  • Roles of the helm and the crew
  • Knot tying and rope work
  • How to rig and launch a dinghy
  • Setting off and returning to a jetty
  • Sailing on all points of sail
  • Capsize practice
  • Sailing single and double handed
  • Training-based games and physical fitness activities
  • Racing basics for more advanced sailors
  • Some paddle boarding and canoeing
  • Lots of fun

We provide buoyancy aids, and your child is much better wearing a wet suit. A light windproof jacket or spray top is also useful to keep warm. The water in the early part of the year is at its coldest. Appropriate footwear is needed to wear on the water, and bring a towel.

Please apply promptly to book a place for your child, as places (and boats) are limited.  The Club has 6 RS Terras, 6 Laser Picos, 3 RS Fevas, 6 Paddleboards
