Welcome to Junior Sail Training

 

Courses for novices and up, aged 8 plus. Children will be working towards their RYA Stages 1 to 4, sailing in Hartley 10, Laser Pico or Hartley 12.2 dinghies provided by the club.

In addition we run Advanced Sailing in weeks 1, 3, 4 and 5 and a Race Clinic on the Saturday before Junior Sailing Race Week.

Format for 2019 courses: We will be running the following categories:

 

Beginners/Improvers will be sailed in Hartley 10s and our RS Tera working on RYA Stages 1 and 2

 

Intermediates will be sailed in Picos working on stage 2 and 3, plus the start of stage 4

 

Advanced will be sailed in Hartley 12.2s, RS Fevas and the Wayfarer working on stage 4, RYA Sailing with Spinnakers and RYA Seamanship and Day Sailing.

 

The Hartley 10s have proved very successful and suitable for progressing to a higher level. Where possible we would like sailors who are working towards their stage 4 to do it in larger boats such as the Feva or Hartley 12.2.

 

The on-line booking system will also show any additional Advanced course we are running.

 

Some general notes:

Please do not try to beat the system by applying for a group higher than your current qualification. If you do, on day two of your course you will be put down a group to avoid holding the others back. This will cause the Training Manager extra work and will cause you unnecessary disappointment and embarrassment.

 

Find your RYA Logbook to check your current level, i.e 1, 2, 3 or 4 or Start Racing.

 

Remember, if you don't sail throughout the year the first two days might be just a refresher thus limiting the progress you can make in any one week. Certificates may not necessarily be awarded to everyone.

 

When you reach Levels 3 and 4 it becomes progressively more difficult to reach the necessary standard to achieve a certificate.

 

If there is insufficient wind we are prohibited by the RYA from issuing certificates.

 

Every sailor reaches his confidence level at a different time so do not hesitate to repeat a course as items in the next course can be ticked off anyway. It is easy to lose confidence and much more difficult to get it back. Don't run before you can walk!
