Information & Support
Our Young Sailors sessions are designed for children aged 7-9 years and are ideal for those with no previous or very little experience of sailing.
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.
£85 for a course of two consecutive half-days. Times vary from 9am-1pm or 1pm-5pm depending on the date you choose.
