Sailing Courses for Kids

Youth Sailing Weeks

During school holidays, our wildly popular Youth Sailing Weeks allow youngsters to work through the RYA Youth Sailing Scheme.  These weeks run from Monday to Friday, 10am to 5pm each day.  During these weeks each sailor will take charge of their own dinghy, under the guidance of our instructors and safety crews. Completion of each stage of the RYA Youth Sailing Scheme will earn students a certificate.  We aim to ensure all students have plenty of fun and learn new skills in a safe environment.

Courses for beginners, intermediate and advanced sailors run each week during the school holidays. In the event of bad weather we have a full shore-based activity programme.

The course fee is £375 per person, which includes equipment hire, RYA Logbooks, certificates and hot drinks.

2024 Dates, weeks commencing:

27 May (TT Practice Week / UK half term)

Summer Holidays weekly from 1 July through to 31 August.

 Under 8s Get Afloat sessions

First you have to row a little boat…. This season we are running four Saturday afternoon sessions for the under 8s, so for everyone that has watched older brothers and sisters enjoy our courses, this is your turn to have a go.  Sessions are all about developing confidence on the water and will include kayaking, rowing small boats, putting a sail up and going sailing and maybe a little adventure of exploration on one of our safety boats.  Most importantly sessions will be fun and super safe too 🙂

Fee £35 per person, per session, wetsuit and buoyancy aids are provided.

2024 Sessions on Sunday 9 June, Saturday 22 June, Saturday 6 July, Saturday 27 July, Saturday 10 and Saturday 24 August from 2pm to 4pm.

Saturday Skills Sessions

Have fun with friends, simply messing about in boats. Saturdays are all about building skills and providing regular time on the water for our junior sailors.

Morning sessions will be led by our instructing team and will assist sailors to complete items in the Logbooks and will coach sailors to develop their practical sailing skills.

In the afternoons sailors are free to enjoy the time afloat as masters of their own destiny around Port Erin Bay. Our team will have a safety boat on hand to assist if sailors need any help, and will have eyes on the sailors at all times.

Available every Saturday during August. Morning Session £40, full day session £80 per person.
