Dinghy Junior Pirates – Learn to Sail Programmes

OnBoard Dinghy Pirates

Dinghy Pirate sessions are organised for children between the ages of 7 and 14 who wish to learn to sail, and follow the RYA Stage 1 and Stage 2 programmes.

OnBoard Advance Pirates

For those who have already had some sailing experience and gained RYA Stage 1, OnBoard Advanced Pirates sessions are normally held on Saturday afternoons starting in early May going on into June. Advanced Pirates aims to achieve the RYA level 2 standard, after which they may progress to Sunday afternoon Buccaneers.

OnBoard Beginner Pirates

Sessions for beginners are normally held on Saturday afternoons later in the season when the water is warmer, and the wind usually lighter enabling most to obtain RYA level 1 certificates.These courses are offered in Toppers, or Optimist type dinghies which are robust yet easy to handle.

Pirate sessions are free to Club members. Children whose parents are not Club members will be required to either join as Junior Members, or as OnBoard Pirate Members. Junior members can join in any of the Junior sessions throughout the year. OnBoard Pirates members are eligible for an individual 5 session training course.

Junior Membership forms can be downloaded, or obtained from and returned to, the Membership Secretary Tony Ogborn.
