Junior Sailing Update

Following last year’s break Junior Sailing will start up again in May. Many applications are already in, but there’s still time if you haven’t applied yet – The forms are here. As time is short please complete them electronically and email to Sally ([email protected]). The cost this year is £15, which is excellent value for 17-ish evenings of RYA assessed tuition! Cheques should be made payable to HRSC and sent in separately to the office.


We had a fantastic summer season on the water. Junior Sailing was at capacity again this year. All the sailors progressed on so much while having an amazing time. There were some challenging conditions to sail in this year but the sailors coped incredibly well and came away more
confident in their abilities. There were new friendships formed and new challenges reached. I’d like to thank all the volunteers for their help this year. Without their dedication and time Junior Sailing couldn’t happen. We will be celebrating Junior Sailing at Posh Nosh, the date of which is to be confirmed soon.

Juniors Report 2013

It’s been another great year for Junior Sailing with the highest level of participation in its sixty year history. Forty three young sailors attended the Friday evening sessions over the Summer: thirty eight juniors in the RYA Youth Scheme and five in the Friday Night Youth Group. The children showed great commitment, with fifty percent of the juniors attending thirteen or more of the year’s fifteen sessions.

For the RYA groups the first half of the season focussed on the practical, theory and seamanship skills needed to progress to the next of the four achievement levels. The remainder of the year, over the summer holiday, was spent reinforcing this learning through games, races and fun events. The Junior Camp night, where the children sailed to Gillan for a BBQ and camped overnight, was a great example of this – and also raised £450 for the Helford River Children’s Sailing Trust (HRCST). Thanks to Susie and Ian for hosting the event.
The Youth Group was a new concept for this year – designed to keep the older children engaged with sailing and give them new experiences in racing and 707 yachting. It’s been fantastic to see that we can offer something unique and valuable to the teenage sailors in the club. We’d like to thank the 707 owners for supporting Youth Group this year and would encourage other owners to come forward and support Junior Sailing in 2014.

The winners of this year’s trophies and cups are:

Optibat Trophy – Rowan Lawrence
Most Improved Junior – Sam Philpott
Andrew Ward Cup (for consistency, courtesy and commitment) – Rebekah Hosking
Carol Lawrence Cup (the most promising newcomer) – Fadli Syam
Acorn Cup (aka Kearsley Cup, for showing great potential) – Ben Harvey & Samuel Armstrong-Lever
Delta Cup (for Mirrors, Toppers & Fevas) – William Griffiths
Chamberlain Tankard (under 12s) – Oliver Forman
Chamberlain Cup – Oliver Chamberlain
Du Bois Junior Racing Cup – Oliver Foreman

The year wasn’t without incident though with safety boat reliability problems and other unfortunate events hampering an already stretched team of instructors, safety boat drivers and other essential helpers. We were only able to put on a fun and safe five month teaching programme this year with the help and commitment of volunteers and active parents, and support from the HRCST.
With a new influx of beginners, next year will present a further challenge. As such we would like to subsidise the training of whose willing to help with Junior Sailing in 2014. Anyone wishing to train in the following, please get in touch with us directly ([email protected]): RYA Senior Instructor (SI), RYA Dinghy Instructor (DI), Powerboat Level 2, Shortwave Radio, First Aid.

And finally a big thank you to all those who made Junior Sailing possible this year:

Senior Instructors – Sammy Hubbard & Chris Broad
Dinghy Instructors – Carol Lawrence, Joan Kearsley, Susie Lawrence, Roger Philpott, Chris Hosken, John Moody, Matt Ridout & Anton Chamberlain
