By the end of this course sailors will be sailing in light wind conditions with assistance from their instructor. It is their first formal sailing course.
This summer camp is designed primarily to teach children the life-skill of sailing in a safe, supervised environment. Every day from 10.00 am to 4.30 pm, a whole new world of experiences is opened up for them as ISA qualified instructors gently and patiently explain the mysteries of the water and the wind and how best to use them together to command their boat. The theory that is taught onshore is put into practise on the water and with that comes knowledge, ability and camaraderie with other children that builds over 2 weeks.
As children grow in knowledge and skill they also grow in confidence and pride in themselves as they become more proficient and ‘master of their ship’. They’re outdoors, in the fresh air, socialising and learning with other children, a skill that will last a lifetime. It is a thrilling and exciting experience that can give your children memories for life as they develop a love for and confidence in, the water.
