Youth Fleet Sailing and OnBoard Club
There are two active sailing groups for youth sailors at the Club.
- The Onboard club which develops sailing skills following Stage 2 award. Sailors in this club can aspire to join the Youth Fleet or become better sailors so they can safely enjoy their own sailing at Carsington Sailing Club.
- The Carsington Sailing Club Youth Fleet is for capable young club sailors looking to develop their sailing skills in an enthusiastic and competent group, including developing racing skills, different boats and other aspects of seamanship. Sailors in this fleet have the opportunity to be involved with the Derbyshire Youth Sailing (DYS) series, CSC club racing and becoming Assistant Dinghy Instructors en-route to being full instructors.
The CSC Youth Fleet meets on a Saturday for 4 hours, with the first two hours concentrated on performance level skills. The second half of the session sees the Youth fleet sailors coaching and mentoring the onboard fleet, sharing experience and helping develop the Onboard club skills. Youth Fleet sailors are normally members and have access to their own boats, they are also in regular communication about sailing in general. We may take other opportunities for Youth Fleet members, i.e. trips away (with parent permissions (or even involvement ).
Launch timings are:
Youth Fleet : 12:00-16:00 supporting the Onboard Club
Onboard Club 14:00-16:00 for 2 hours.
There are a comprehensive section of Youth Training Courses on the website which we would encourage visitors to view if they want a more detailed idea of what is available.
