RYA Courses for Juniors (available for members only)

WWSC is an accredited RYA Training Centre and offers training based on their Youth Sailing Scheme. With our sailing restricted by tide times and (sometimes) weather conditions, parents should be aware that it is not unusual for juniors to take more than 3 days to demonstrate they have completed all the elements needed to complete a particular RYA Stage.

RYA Training 1 (run over 3 days from 29 May to 1 June)

This course will offer our younger sailors that missed out in 2020 the opportunity to start sailing. Training will be at RYA Stages 1 and 2 and will be run in SailQubes and Optimists. The course is suitable for beginners and those wanting to progress from Stage 1 aged 7 and above.

Cost will be £120.00 per person using your own boat or £156.00 if using a Club boat.

Booking will open in mid-April.

RYA Training 2 (run over 3 days from 23 to 25 August with spare day on Aug 26)

We have divided this into 3 sub-events running alongside each other. The first offers RYA Youth Stages 1-3 plus the more advanced "Start Racing" course. The second is for those interested in RYA Stage 4 (learn to sail a double-hander). The last is our Dinghy Instructor Pathway course for competent juniors considering the step up to become an RYA instructor. The training run will be dependent on sufficient demand. For example we will need enough participants to run the Start Racing course. If a particular course is not viable applicants will be offered alternatives or a refund. Each course has a spare day on August 26 to cater for adverse weather. Again, juniors should be at least 7 years old to take part and at least 15 for the DI Pathway.

Cost will be £120.00 per person if using your own boat, £156.00 if using a Club single handed boat or £142.50 if sharing a Club double-hander (Feva, Zest or Pico).

Booking will open in mid-April.
