Our youth sailors have started sailing for the season, joining Ben out on the water with full enthusiasm. The 3-hour kid’s session includes a bit of theory, preparation and a lot of practice time either in the Picos lasers or on the J70 boats. All the kids need to bring is swimwear, water, a sun hat and sun protection, and most importantly a wish to learn to sail. Instructor Ben has had years of experience and appreciates the need to keep the learning environment fun and safe.
For those parents who are worried about letting their kids go out on the water, our safety equipment is checked regularly and upgraded when necessary. We keep a ratio of 6 boats to one safety boat, in line with the RYA standards. We have a ratio of 9 students to 1 instructor as per RYA guidelines, giving students maximum sailing time as well as adhering to health and safety practices.
Kids sailing is open to ages 8-16 years. Bookings are required by contacting Jenny of Ben on firstname.lastname@example.org. All parents and guardians will need to complete a booking form before the start of the session between 2 pm and 5 pm on Wednesdays or Fridays. The number of sessions will increase during to summer holidays. The prices have stayed the same with a monthly deal for our regular sailors.
