Our sailing and powerboat team is itching to get back on the water teaching the sports they love! We have been closely following RYA guidance and we are now in a position to offer some Powerboat and Sailing sessions for Juniors. These sessions are limited as we are still under very strict operating procedures with a heavily reduced staffing team. 

What we have available:


Powerboat Level 1 

The Powerboat Level 1 course is a great introduction to powerboating. On this course you will cover coming alongside, picking up a mooring, man overboard, being towed, low-speed skills, and also rules of the road. At the end of this course, we expect you to be able to drive a powerboat under adult supervision. 

When: 12th August 2020 – 10:00 – 16:30

Ages/Experience: 8-16yrs no experience needed

All you need to bring is some clothes to wear while on the water and a waterproof jacket. Please note you will not have to get in the water on this course.
