Junior Sailing

Did you know that RCYC Members’ children and grandchildren can learn to sail free of charge with our Junior Sailing programme?   Our knowledgeable and enthusiastic  volunteers run dinghy training sessions for youngsters to grow their skills and confidence on the water.  We’ve had up to twenty children enjoying themselves on Feva, Pico and Hartley 10 dinghies. It’s been enormous fun for the children, the helpers and the spectators ashore.  We’ve had lots of laughs and huge smiles! Junior Sailing at the RCYC is all about enjoyment and gaining confidence on and in the water. If your children have friends who’d like to take part, the sessions are open to non-members for a small fee.

Junior Sailing is back for 2022! The news for the new season is that we should have some changing sheds being installed in the next few weeks to provide better facilities for the children. We are also in the process of acquiring a couple of Pico dinghies to add to our fleet. As in previous seasons, please keep an eye on the RCYC Facebook page as this is where any updates or cancellation of sessions will be posted. The dates for the coming season will be here when available.

We’d love to see you and your children here with us.  It’s a great way to get them learning independence on the water – and a lovely way to meet other members on the beach.
