Boat Camp runs this year from 17th to the 20th August and is aimed at helping young sailors to gain new skills and make new friends. Please note, it is not an RYA course and will not lead to us awarding RYA sailing certificates. Boat Camp is open to members only.
To take part, sailors should be able to sail to RYA Stage 2 or equivalent standard, with either a certificate or having been observed to be at that standard by a club SI. All Boat Camp instructors are fully qualified volunteers, so we do expect parents to do either a Clubhouse/Galley duty or Beach duty (help with launching and recovery).
We hope that all double-handed club boats will be available to try for some activities - and this is included in the fee. However, your child will also need a boat for other activities - either use their own, or hire one of the club single handers at usual rates.
Places are available on a first come, first served basis. Be aware that we will require payment before places are allocated and that just 18 places are available. Applications for fewer than 4 days attendance may be considered following an initial booking period.

As we go in to Step Three of the Government’s Roadmap out of lockdown we are much closer to being able to operate the club along the lines of what we used to see as ‘normal’. Whilst this is good news, it’s also important that we continue to exercise some degree of caution and common sense. Hands – Space – Face still apply and remember, everyone needs to be able to operate within their own comfort zone. Some people might be happy relaxing social distancing and moving in for a hug, others may not, so please, be considerate!
We cover updates to use of changing rooms, safety cover, accessing the clubhouse, galley and bar, visitors and spectators, and duties.
