In addition we run a weekly Summer sailing school July & August and weekly classes during school holidays.


Autumn classes will run from Tuesday September 13 to Friday December 16, 2022. These sessions are not available for open registration. If you are interested in signing up for the Autumn term please go here. Look forward to seeing you on the water!
We're thrilled to be running a Summer Sailing Programme again this year. You will find not all classes are offered every week. If we are able to add in additional classes will let you know here! We ask that you waitlist for the session you are interested in as we are able to accomodate most children on the waitlist. Feel free to drop us a line if you need more information!

2022 Summer Sailing Prorgramme Info & Price List
The Sea Squirt programme is back in full force the Summer of 2022 with 6 weeks of classes. The ‘Sea Squirt’ Programme is designed for those kids ages 5 and 6 who can swim and a ready to start messing around in sailing boats. Our Sea Squirt instructor team is headed by Nathan Bailey, the Sailing Director and several RYA Dinghy Instructors and helpers who enjoy working with this age group.
The goal of the 1-week course is to get your child comfortable in an Optimist with a junior sail (smaller sail). Most kids are sailing in a controlled environment by the end of the week. Emphasis is on FUN! There is a lot of play time in this programme, both on and off the water, along with plenty of time for water & snack breaks this age group is used to. This is a 9:00 am to 3:00 pm programme for the young ones.
