New Flotilla at Cookham Reach  (29 April 2015 20:22)

On Saturday 2nd May at 2pm Cookham Reach Sailing Club launches their new children's flotilla, CROK (Cookham Reach Optimist Kids). This exciting event marks the beginning of our sailing programme, for children aged 5 to 15. From May to September we will be providing FREE sailing activities for club members and their children on Saturdays from 1.30pm to 4pm. Cookham Reach will be the ONLY club in the area to teach young children to sail in Optimists on the river.
Sailing benefits children in many ways:
It is one of few sports where girls and boys compete together, as technical ability is more important than strength.
It is an outdoor activity that develops hand-eye coordination, spatial awareness, balance and muscle strength.
It builds self confidence and concentration as children handle a boat alone.
We welcome children of all abilities and complete beginners are very welcome.
We are a small club and have already been working with our local school, Holy Trinity. This school now owns their own boat and have given many children a sailing experience. We are now excited to be able to open this opportunity up to many other children.
