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 anyone in education from aged 8 (before 31st Dec) upwards. We have two groups, the earlier one (15.30-17.30pm) being for younger beginners and the later one (17.30-19.30pm) being open to all abilities and age groups.   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 group of Tera and Pico sailors which also contained a 13 year old doing her physical section for her Bronze Duke of Edinburgh Award.

The 17.30pm time has proved to be popular, with 17 children attending in 2017, in 3 different ability groups.  The middle group of Oppie sailors enjoyed sailing in very high winds with storm rigs and when there was no wind they tried out our new Peanut rowing dinghies which were thoroughly enjoyed.

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