About this event

Three day Sailing Course for children aged 8+

The three day sailing course is held during summer half term on Cheddar Reservoir.

The course is a two day course running most weeks in the summer half term. Parents do not need to stay on site with their children - but must be contactable and available at all times. If parents do wish to stay - there is free WiFi, a fridge, kettle and Microwave that can be used.

The club is an RYA Recognised Training Center and the course will be run following RYA guidelines for instructor student ratio, syllabus and safety.
