Brixham Yacht Club actively encourages people of all ages to come and sail dinghies with us. Our Junior fleet has grown considerably over the past couple of years and the club's vision is to provide the platform to work with you and your children to develop and improve their skills and confidence whilst maintaining the absolute ethos of 'having fun'. Two of our juniors are currently working their way through the RYA National Topper Squads and we would love to see more join them.
We offer RYA training for juniors and then encourage them to come out and join us for some racing to build their confidence and skills. Rescue cover is provided by the club but we do expect them to be confident enough to sail in the prevailing weather conditions.
Where we have juniors out on the water, we would ask that they always have parental backup on shore. If we can accommodate, there is occasionally an option to help out on the safety boats, please ask the team for more information.
The club has a couple of Toppers that are available for Hire at the club which are great boats for Juniors to learn and develop in; as well as junior sailing we encourage sailing for all ages and we have boats suitable for all ages and skill sets available for pay to play so parents and grand-parents can join in with their family if they fancy giving it a go. While club boats offer a great opportunity to enable anyone to see if they enjoy sailing ultimately we would encourage boat ownership for juniors to help their development and we have a number of parents that can help guide you find the right boat.
For any further information, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be more than happy to advise.
