It’s great for children to get familiar with the beach and sea, and we welcome children of all ages. Cadet sailing sessions are held throughout the sailing season, as well as parties and gatherings during the winter. RYA endorsed courses start from age 8 at the Whitstable Watersports Centre (where WYC members receive up to 25% discount!), and informal Cadet and General Sailing sessions are held throughout the sailing season, as well as parties and gatherings during the winter.
The regular sessions throughout the year are labelled as “Cadet and Family Sailing Sessions” in the Sailing Schedule and are run by an RYA Sailing Coach along with volunteer parents. We aim to put an event on whatever the weather. We welcome volunteers and new ideas so if you wish to join in please contact our Sailing Development Officer.
Cadets and families are also encouraged to sail in our racing programme. Racing is an ideal way of improving your sailing skills, and maybe even picking up some prizes! The full sailing programme can be found at wyc.org.uk/on-the-water/schedule. To find out more about class racing, contact the Class Captain for your boat.
WYC has a selection of boats available for cadets and families to try out sailing, including a Mirror, a Topaz, a Laser and an RS Feva. Mirrors are also available to hire for the full season (contact the Sailing and Membership secretary for more information). If you're thinking of buying a boat, we strongly recommend that you buy a suitable boat that's already sailed at WYC. This will allow you to develop as a sailor and get useful tips and advice from other club members. For a list of recommended boats, click here
