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.
