RYA Youth Sailing Scheme Stage 1

15th May - 5 June 2023

A 4 week course for children aged 8-12. Based on the RYA Youth Sailing Scheme, but conducted in our Hawk 20 Keelboat.

Learning to sail in a keelboat is a great way to get started on the water. The Youth Sailing scheme courses will see children quickly progress from beginners to confident sailors in a safe and enjoyable environment. They will be under the watchful eye of a qualified instructor who will be in the boat with them.
