Junior Sailing Courses - Summer School 2017

ELYC summer program is run by a professional team with some voluntary help and looks to provide a safe and supportive introduction to sailing, and where possible awarding RYA certificates.

It should be noted that certificates are awarded through the RYA scheme, and thus only awarded when skills can be shown at the correct level. The club takes no responsibility for the completion of certificates, we will support participants towards achieving their best. However, it is important that junior sailors present with the right skill level for the course they wish to do.

For information on the courses we plan to deliver, please see the RYA website: click here

All courses are run Monday – Friday 09:30 – 16.00.

Cost for all week courses is £175 per person. 

Participants must be a cadet member of ELYC, click here to apply for membership. Please note non-members will not be accepted on to the courses. Cadet membership costs are separate to course costs, cadets are aged between 11-16 years old.

Participants should be confident in the water and able to swim 50m in light clothing.

You will be asked to complete an application form and a medical consent form on the ELYC website.

We will not take anyone under 11 years on the Learn to Sail / Improvers courses.
