YOUTHS (12ish - 18 years)
We recognize that as children grow up, their needs change and our youth section has a few specific activities targeted at them. Our longer term youth members are often extremely competent sailors, racing at high standard nationally and internationally. We celebrate all participation, contribution and endeavour, not just the winners; we also make a point of encouraging our competent youth members to get involved and help with junior sailing and novice youth sailors so that everyone knows each other and they support and contribute to each other's development, both on and off the water.
The club offers the Assistant Instructor Course to competent youth members which looks good on their university CV and provides a supervised introduction to the world of teaching and responsibility. We can also support DofE volunteering via our existing development system although we do not offer specific DofE programmes.
