2pm to 4pm or 4pm to 6pm
For over 30 years, Royal Lymington Yacht Club’s Wednesday junior sailing programme has been teaching children the basics of sailing. Children learn how to tie knots, how to row and about safety as well as how to sail.
For just £1 a week, youngsters not only get two hours of dedicated tuition from the club’s experienced instructors and willing volunteers, but they also get a cup of hot chocolate and a doughnut thrown in too.
In order to participate, children must be 8 years of age and a consent form, with photo, must be completed and submitted to Royal Lymington Yacht Club. Children must wear appropriate clothing and footwear for sailing and weather. A buoyancy aid will be provided for those who do not have their own. Long hair must be tied back and suncream applied. Ensure sufficient layers in colder weather.
Children progress through a series of levels and will have to queue each week to be admitted - numbers vary each week according to the number of volunteers. Parents/carers must stay until sure that their child has been admitted and has changed into sailing kit. During busy periods, some children may not be admitted due to oversubscription - anyone turned away will be put on the list to get in the following week.
