This course is suitable for 6 - 10 year olds who have never sailed before or have very limited experience.

Get on Board is a fun intro to boats / sailing / safety. Predominantly based around enjoying being on the water in a well supported environment, in one of our larger boats in groups with an Assistant Instructor. There is also an opportunity to learn as well as play in an opti with an opportunity to capsize if comfortable.

You can attend this course as many times as you like until confident on the water.
