Youth Sailing 2018

Youth Sailing 2018 is now Fully Subscribed

This year the youth sailing program will begin with a registration day on  Tuesday 29th May 18.00. We plan to get as much of the administration required, completed on this evening, in order to avoid to many distractions to future sailing time.

Youth sailing at HSLSC is aimed at a wide range of youth from aged 7 to 18. Please note for children under 13 years of age a parent or appointed guardian will need to be in attendance at all times during the training session

No previous sailing experience is necessary but swimming ability is required. This is the third year that HSLSC has run a separate youth sailing program. In contrast to previous years we will be running these sessions in accordance with RYA guidance for training whenever we can. This will enable all who sail to begin the qualification process under the RYA Youth Sailing Scheme which is a four stage syllabus.

Some juniors who have sailed before at HSLSC, or elsewhere, will already be above Stage 1 and will gain their certificates quickly.

As with previous years, any junior wishing to join the program will need to become a member along with a parent or responsible adult obtaining at a minimum of an associate membership.

The charges for 2018 which include RYA Youth Sailing Scheme costs are as follows:-

Existing junior members £15

Non junior members £76  (youth Sailing fee + junior and associate membership fees)

As always the emphasis will be on having Safe Fun Sailing for all.
