Gybe Club + Sailing Academy

Junior Gybe Club - 

Gybe club – is our regular Saturday morning fun youth sailing club for 10 to 16 year olds. During each session Gybers’ will practice sailing skills from any of the 4 Stages of the Youth Scheme, but most importantly you will be encouraged by our trained RYA coaches and support team to have safe fun whilst afloat. Each session will be designed to fit with the sailing experience you have, level of sailor you are, and what the weather is doing.
You’ll be able to tick off sailing skills within Stages 1 to 4 of the RYA Youth Scheme at any of these Gybe club sessions or at one of the monthly special RYA youth events where we concentrate on RYA youth level certificates.
We have a limited number of club boats available for use during the Gybe sessions - ideally we recommend that you look to buy yourself a reasonably priced boat, second hand is fine. Toppers or RS Feva's are preferred for 14+ group but this can depend on sailing experience. Toppers are used in our starter age group 10+ (contact the centre principal via email at if you would like to know more about a boat)


Sailing Academy

This is for sailors who’ve gone through all the RYA stages and looking to try racing. It’s at the same time as Gybe Club and costs the same, but the aim of the Sailing Academy is to take your sailing to the next level. That means more advanced boat handling, spinnaker work, making the boat go faster and racing. Nic Allen will lead this with some of our expert instructors and advanced sailors. This is a fantastic opportunity to improve your sailing in a supportive, friendly environment. Book your place on the website.

We meet on Saturday mornings between 10.00 – 13.00 on the following days during 2017; See below for registration info
