Under 18 Syllabus

The training scheme for the under 18s is designed to give you the chance to learn in a safe, controlled and fun environment. Over all four stages you will get help and advice to make sure you can do the skills on the course before moving onto the next one. As you progress through the stages you will learn how to rig your own boat, launch and recover it, and sail it competently. As you get more confident you will be able to start racing with club members in cup races.

Sailing is a great opportunity to meet people and make new friends in a safe and friendly environment. Even better, you can come with your friends and learn to sail together. Membership is currently free for those under the age of 25, so this is an excellent chance to learn to sail and join in with club events.

The RYA Stages 1-4 can also become part of schemes such as the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award.

Please note that the minimum age for a youth sailor to take part is 11 years old. However, feel free to contact Training to discuss your needs - This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
