After School Club

We run an After School Club for young YSC members on Thursdays during the summer when the tide is right.

The Club is open to any YSC junior, pre-cadet or cadet members in education from aged 8 (before 1st January 2020) to aged 17.    In 2017 our oldest member was 17 years old and was completing the physical section of his Silver Duke of Edinburgh Award by learning to sail.  He successfully integrated with the more advanced younger group of Tera and Pico sailors which also contained a 13 year old doing her physical section for her Bronze Duke of Edinburgh Award.

Some very nervous beginners have been nurtured through and it is very rewarding to see these youngsters now sailing independently.

In 2019 all sessions will run from 17.00 to 19.30.

Qualifying Age:  Children must be 8 before 1st January 2020.

Dates:  April 25, May 9, 23, June 13, 27, July 11, September 5.

Cost:  £8 per session.  Reduction to £45 for whole course if paid when applying.  (Financial assistance is available for those who need it.)

Equipment:  Children must be dressed appropriately (see kit list below).  This is very important and children without the correct clothing may be asked to leave the session.

Boats:  Club boats are available to use, including Optimists, Teras, Feva, Picos and Quests.  Children may also use their own boats if available.  Beginners are not expected to own their own boats.

Applications:  The application form will be published when applications open in January.   Please return to Melinda Measor (Park Cottage, Tennyson Close, Yarmouth, PO41 0PU, membership.ysc@btconnect.com).
