Junior & Youth Courses
Young Sailors beginning their sailing jouney at Carsington Sailing Club will be introduced to a sport that can be enjoyed at all levels from 8 years old and upwards.
Carsington Water is one of the finest inland waters in the Midlands and is the home of Carsington Sailing Club.
The Club is recognised by the Royal Yachting Association as a Teaching Establishment, which means that you can be confident that the standard of tuition and equipment will be excellent. The RYA Dinghy scheme has been extensively revised and in learning to sail you will follow the syllabus for RYA Start Sailing & Basic Skills Certificates.
Carsington Sailing Club run a comprehensive set of courses for young sailors which are a combination of RYA certified courses plus some which have been adapted around the facilities the club provides and which are based upon RYA courses.
What Equipment Will I Need?
We provide buoyancy aids, logbook and a beginners handbook, as well as all the help and encouragement you may require.
You will need plenty of warm clothing and waterproofs, some non-slip footwear which can get wet and sunscreen.
It is a club rule that all sailors must wear either a wetsuit/drysuit or clothing providing a similar level of protection between November 1st and April 30th. It is also recommended that appropriate clothing of a similar nature should be worn from May 1st to October 31st.
If you are unsure about the suitability of your sailing clothing, please check with the office when booking. Full details will be sent with your joining instructions.
