Summer Sailing School for Beginners Level 1 & 2

Our summer sailing school is open to kids aged 7  – 16 years. It offers young sailors an opportunity to have fun playing games on the water while learning how to sail in a safe and fun environment, building confidence and independence by teaching them to sail independently right from the start. We teach the basics of sailing where kids can learn out of the classroom through action and supported experimentation in a controlled, coach supervised setting.  This involves;

  • Building skills one layer at a time, starting with steering behind the safety boat in the first session
  • Later adding the sail and eventually letting the kids control the boat alone. 
  • Learning skills like tacking and gybing onshore to build muscle memory before we practice them on the water. 
  • Learning how to sail on different sailing angles through experimentation. 

 

We accept kids for 2 levels:

Level 1 – complete beginners

Level 2 – Have some sailing experience but need to build confidence

This course is only open to Vikings Sailing Club members. You may apply for membership here. One you receive an email that your membership application has been completed, you may proceed to book.
