Pre-Sailing Skills Sessions at West Wight Sports & Community Centre

Children must be 7 years old and over and able to swim 25 metres.

This session is suitable for complete beginners/nervous sailors or those that need to gain confidence in a boat or just remind themselves how to rig and right a boat after a capsize.  They learn about steering and balance in a fun way.

The session is led by qualified dinghy instructors.

Date:  Saturday 13th April 2019.

Times:  9.00 – 11.00 a.m.

Cost:  £20 per session.

Booking:  It is essential to book in advance by ringing 01983 752168 or by person at reception.  Places are limited so book early.

Children should wear t-shirt and shorts over swimmers or a wetsuit in the water and bring a buoyancy aid if they have one (there are some available to borrow if not).
Parents are welcome to stay but can only leave a child in this session if they are 8 and over.

Activities include swimming in a buoyancy aid, rigging, capsize drill, bailing, praddling, how to be rescued safely, balance and fun steering races.
