Junior Sailing Summary
Starts on Saturday 13 May 2023.
Please be at the Club at 1.30pm to allow time to rig boats and change into sailing gear to be on the water around 2.00pm start. We come off the water around 4.30pm depending on the weather and finish by 5.00pm.
New junior sailors are very welcome, including grandchildren of family members. We do require a basic level of water confidence wearing a buoyancy-aid due to sailing in deep water, please ask for further details if required.
Junior Sailing sessions start the first Saturday in May and continue on Saturday afternoons through end July. We take a break during August, start again in September and continue through to the Chocolate Regatta at the end of September.
