A fun sailing course for 5 – 7 year olds covering 5 mornings or 5 afternoons during the school holidays. This course is aimed at getting the youngest sailors out on the water, having fun, making friends and learning about the sport. We tailor the sessions to be land and water based, games and activity-focused, in small groups (ratio 1 instructor to 3 children) and exciting so they can make happy memories and feel confident on the water.
