For kids aged 13 – 16 we have RYA Youth Sailing Qualifications as well as our Race Camps and Advanced Handling  courses.
All of the RYA stages are supported with a log book which can be purchased from the office, so parts of the syllabus can be ticked off as you progress and record your achievement. So you’ll be sailing through the stages before you know it!
