About this event

The Friday Evening Junior sailing is for BCYC Junior members -  aged 8 - 15 

These friday evening sessions are for BCYC Junior members with minimal sailing experience, or those returning to dinghy sailing after not having sailed for a while and wanting to build confidence and competence.

More experienced sailors should be sailing on a sunday morning with BCYC Junior Warriors - organised by Richard Packer - (contact him direct on richardpacker1988@googlemail.com - participants should be able to sail a triangle.)

The emphasis on friday evenings will be time on the water and having fun, while following the youth sailing syllabus for progression of skills. 

The dates for the Junior Sailing Fridays at BCYC are

June 11th for eight weeks

The start time is 18:30 and finish will be around 20:30 

There is no need to attend every friday, but there will be no refund for days that are missed.

What Do I Need to Go Sailing?

The course provides all equipment needed, wetsuits, buoyancy aid and spray jacket, except you will need to provide shoes that can get wet (training shoes or pumps will do) and a towel.  

In the summer, a change of clothes and shorts can be worn - subject to the weather conditions.

You need to be a member of BCYC (along with a parent or guardian) . Social non sailing membership is available at a reduced price, but your parent/guardian will be expected to help out with the course. Free powerboat training is provided to members.

How Much Will it Cost?

Places can be booked from Saturday March 20th 2021. The cost is £5 a week - £40  for the eight weeks payable in advance. In addition if you would like to purchase an RYA work book or RYA Logbook - these can be obtained for £10. Please ask your instructor.

Will I need to Help with the training?

The simple answer is yes - parents/guardians will be expected to literally roll their trousers up and get their feet wet. Once you realise how easy it is you will want to have a go yourself - good enough for the kids - good enough for you

The club has Stand up paddleboards that you can take on the water to be able to join in with the fun. We have safety boats that you will be trained to use. A senior instructor and qualified dinghy instructors will be on site - but they will show you how you can help build your child confidence and sailing ability.

Please note - it's not always sunny
