Youth Sailing

The small, sheltered waters are ideal for learning the basics of dinghy sailing.  We offer the Beginner Sailing course here at Trevassack Lake.   Once you have learnt the basics, why not try the Improver Sailing course with us on the Helford River!

Working towards the RYA Youth syllabus, sessions are taught by RYA Instructors through a mixture of formal and informal practical and theory sessions.  The focus is on creating a fun environment where all students are able to develop at their own pace.

RYA certification is awarded upon successful completion of the syllabus, and while we cannot guarantee certification, our ambition is to get the best out of all our students during their time with us.

Offered from Easter all the way through to the Autumn half term for children aged 8-15 years.
