Junior Sailing Courses
Junior sailing courses for Under 16s are generally taught in groups as they learn quicker and enjoy this style of learning. These courses are conducted under the AALA licensing, and are following the RYA scheme, and working to their ratios for tuition and safety while keeping the courses enjoyable and stimulating.
We teach our Junior Sailing Courses to The Royal Yatching Association (RYA) standards.
