Youth Beginner Sailing Camp

We run our Beginners Camps during the Easter, Summer and half-term Holidays. The camps range between three and five-days and will get everyone out on the water and enjoy their first time sailing. These are open to everyone aged 8 - 16, with plenty of opportunities to get in control of their boats while having a great time. We will be working towards RYA stage 1 and 2 of the youth sailing scheme that is the first step to a fulfilling childhood sailing. These camps are an excellent opportunity to get out on the water and get lots of sailing while having a great time and gaining valuable qualifications. If you are looking for an alternative, we also run a Thursday Evening Beginners Group

Our team are on hand to support you.
