Youth Courses

Youth Courses

Our youth courses are specifically designed for people aged 8-16 who would like to try watersports. As with the adult schemes, good tuition and sound advice mean that you will learn quickly and enjoy the sport more. There are 4 fun activities available, sailing, windsurfing, paddlesports and powerboating. All of these courses will be taught in small groups by our fully qualified instructors, due to the age restrictions you will be learning with people of a similar age.

Please note all youth courses start at 12.45 and finish at 6pm over 2 consecutive days.
