Cadet and Family sessions

Cadet and Family sessions will be run throughout the year and we aim to make sessions safe and fun. They are an opportunity to get children out on the water (weather permitting) in your boat or a club provided boat. These weekly sessions are offered to members either on a Friday evening or Saturday depending on the tide. The emphasis is on safe and fun sailing under the direction of an instructor. These sessions are ideal for giving children time on the water to put into practice what they have learned from a RYA course and to develop their ability towards the next level.

The sessions are aimed getting children out on the water, and improving their sailing skills, and are not intended to provide formal watersports training. To see the range of RYA Courses available for youth or adults, see our training pages.

There is a nominal charge for the season, to cover costs, including instructors. Boat hire for the session and kit hire is a separate weekly payment.

Please Note: All minors are to be accompanied by a parent or responsible adult, who must be present for the whole sessions and willing to help (including getting their feet wet!).

Cadet sessions are for members only, a email will be sent out from the training team each week with a link to book onto sessions.

All start times for sailing events are ‘on the water’. A briefing will be held half an hour before the listed start time
