Active Sail -- Junior Beginner

25th June 2019 - 30th July 2019


Southampton Water Activities Centre , Floating Bridge Road Chapel

Information: 02380 915753

A fun and exciting five day learn to sail course for eight to twelve year olds with an emphasis on having fun while learning new skills to sail.

What is it?

Active Sail courses are designed around the RYA Youth Sailing Scheme; Junior Beginner covers stages one and two over a fun, hands-on week. We start the lessons close to the centre and the shore, teaching children the parts of the boat and how to sail away and return to the slipway in pairs. We keep each session as practical as possible; as confidence grows we sail further from the centre and play games to develop skills and understanding. By Friday, weather permitting, we embark on a day sail (Pirate fancy dress encouraged!) for an offsite picnic before returning to base ready to wow and amaze parents at the weekly sail past!

We teach at a ratio of 6:1 meaning children are well supervised and receive specific feedback to make sure they enjoy mastering the sport.

When is it?

We run Active Sail Junior Beginner courses every week of the school holidays.

Who is it for?

Children aged 8 -12 with little or no previous experience of sailing. On request over 12’s may be permitted to join friends and siblings.
