    Junior Sailing 2020

    Hi All.
    I hope you’re all well and haven’t been washed away with all the rain we’ve had this winter! On the plus side it will be summer soon and we’ll be back to sailing, therefore please find attached the application form for Junior Sailing 2020! 

    There are a couple of changes this year, most notably the cost will now be £15 per child for the summer, this is in the interest of keeping Junior Sailing as inclusive as possible.

    The application form looks a little different however the information is the same, if you are completing it for more than one child please ensure they have one application each however you can duplicate the emergency contacts. as long as this is very clear when you submit them. 

    As ever we are always looking for volunteers to help out so if you would like to support more than just at the start and finish of the sailing session please do let me know. Furthermore if any juniors are interested in becoming Assistant Instructors please let me know prior to sending their applications in. 

    Application can be sent to HRSC or emailed directly to this email address, all money must be sent to HRSC directly. 

    I’m really looking forward to another fabulous summer on the water and hope to see you all soon!

    Best wishes

    Junior Sailing Application 2020


    This summer’s sailing has been awesome.

    We did a lot of fun activities, on land and water. On Friday nights there are a lot of children that learn to sail, it’s a good way to make new friends and also see old friends from last year’s sailing.

    Learning to sail is so much fun, from capsizing drills, learning to race, on windy nights having to hike out and learning to rig a boat; so much fun!

    I been sailing since I was 8 years old and this year I have learnt
    so much and the friendly instructors helped me to push my limits of sailing to achieve what I wanted to do. This year one of the instructors, Chris Hosken, took me out on one of the racing days called the May Cup. I loved it to see other side of sailing, after that I got really into racing and I entered in some more races and also some sailing regattas. Hopefully I will be doing more next summer, when I am out on the water sailing I feel like I can do anything!

    Junior helm was great. It’s an evening where kind adults take us out on their sailing boats and let us have a go. When it’s bad weather and can’t go sailing we have theory nights; we learn knots , rules of the water and lots more. But it’s done in a fun way with games and competitions and we get to win a prize. This summer has been the best and I’m looking forward to next summer.
