Cambridge Yacht Club Learn to Sail and Youth Sailing Program. Registrations are now open for the Cambridge Yacht Club Learn to Sail program. Open to children aged 9 through 12. Boats and safety equipment is provided by the yacht club.
Sessions run during Terms 4 & 1 on Tuesdays from 5:30pm till 8:00pm
As an extension of the junior Learn to Sail program the Cambridge Youth Sailing Program invites Year 7 through 13 students who are interested in learning how to sail and developing their sailing skills, to an information evening hosted by Cambridge Yacht Club. This program has the aim of making sailing more accessible and fun in a supportive team learning environment. Students will learn from experienced sailors in the program sailing in a fleet of eight purpose built two-handed race training yachts, which focus on teamwork and learning from each other. All aspects of dinghy sailing are taught, including sailing knots, parts of a boat, maritime safety, and dinghy racing. No sailing experience is required, with a willingness to learn new skills and to work hard the only requirements. The program will also include the development of race squads for interschool Team Sailing competitions.
Youth sailing program runs on Sundays and Thursdays during Terms 4 & 1.
