Training (Dinghy Junior – Buccaneers Programme)

Dinghy Buccaneers

Dinghy Buccaneers is for Junior sailors who have completed  an Advanced Pirates course and are seeking new challenges and to enhance their sailing skills.Juniors

Buccaneers training is run on most Sunday afternoons between April and October. Centered on a racing theme, these sessions are instructive and yet fun, with a broad mixture of boat control, racing techniques and racing rules covered during the season. The Buccaneers is an opportunity for Juniors to mix with others of a similar standard and share a semi-structured learning environment.

Buccaneers are encouraged (as their skills develop) to participate in the Sunday morning ‘all comers’ racing and/or in the more relaxed Lazy Sunday afternoon racing, which is for those who are interested in racing and want to develop both their confidence and experience. Typical dinghies used in Buccaneers are Toppers and/or Picos.

Buccaneers sessions are free to Club members. Children whose parents are not Club members will be required to join as Junior Members and then can join in any of the Junior sessions throughout the year.

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