Information & Support
Experience required: RYA Stage 4
This course is suitable for those aged 9-15 years.
The Centre has a team of experienced sailing staff, who will guide your child through these early stages of their sailing experience. The shallow waters of Christchurch Harbour make it an ideal place to learn to sail.
Your child will need to bring shoes for the water eg beach shoes or wetsuit boots (not crocs or flip flops as these come off too easily) and swimwear to wear under a wetsuit. If staying for the day, they will also need to bring snacks, lunch and plenty to drink. Suncream and hats are advisable too. All other equipment is supplied, eg wetsuits, bouyancy aids and helmets.
£145 for a course of two consecutive full days, or £90 for a course of two consecutive half days. Start times vary depending on the date you choose.
