In 2018 we plan to offer RYA Young Sailors Stages 1-4 on Friday evenings through the summer term; After-School Sailing Club on Mondays through the summer term; Saturday morning Sailing Club throughout much of the season; and some Start Racing training on Thursday evenings in June and July. The Club also offers various opportunities to young sailors, as they gain experience, for cruising and racing on Thursday evenings, Sunday mornings and Tuesday evenings. A Summer Sailing Week and Away Days also often feature on the calendar.

Stage 1 is for beginners aged 8 and above and no previous experience is required. By the end of Stage 1 young people should be able to sail a boat under supervision in good conditions. Stages 2 and 3 develop sailing skills and Stage 4 teaches sailing in double-handed boats. By the end of Stage 2 young people should be sailing competently on their own in good conditions and by the end of Stage 3/4 they should be able to sail in more challenging conditions. Club boats used for training sessions include RS Visions, RS Teras, Toppers and RS Fevas.

All participants in Club training must be a Club Member (either Junior or Family Member.) If you are a CSCC member and have completed a Stage with us, we will already have noted your interest for 2018 and will be in contact letting you know when WebCollect booking and payment is to be opened in February.

Places are limited and will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis once WebCollect booking opens in February, so please do get in contact well in advance.
