Junior Sailing Overview

We’ve always been a club focused on encouraging and developing our young sailors.

We want our cadets to grow up loving sailing as much as we do. We want them to feel involved with the Club, to gain experience, to be part of a team, to develop responsibility, to be involved in friendly and healthy competition, to learn to thrive in a challenging environment, to connect with nature and be aware of their surroundings. We nurture young sailors, helping them to understand the water and to sail with confidence. We are firm believers in creating a friendly and fun environment for children and teenagers to learn the ropes, giving them room to prosper and grow.


Mirrors


Our Mirrors Class has the biggest fleet in the Club and with over 90 boats is the most active Mirror fleet in the country. These robust, versatile and fairly light boats are easily maintained and repaired and can be launched into the water very quickly and easily. We support all standards of Mirror sailing from beginner to club racing to national racing levels. For more details contact: Richard Benson, Class Captain, and see also: Mirror Events Schedule / Mirror News

Recognised by the International Sailing Federation the International 420s are a youth trainer for the larger Olympic class International 470. With Bermuda rig and optional spinnaker and trapeze, they are excellent youth trainers but with the added capability to learn advance sailing techniques.
