Introductory Primary School Sailing Sessions

We are able to run a variety of different sessions to fit in with what you want to achieve. We are very flexible with time, number of participants and length of sessions.

For younger years we recommend a fun 2 hour session with lots of sailing related games and plenty of time on the water. For the older years we recommend a 3-4 hour session that includes more theory but still incorporates many games and sailing.

All sessions tap into those fundamental skills that students need to develop as they grow up. Skills such as water safety, independence, self reliance, decision making and confidence.
