Develop your sailing skills on this five day action-packed sailing improver week. Ideal for children who are confident sailors looking to refine their skills and find more speed.

Taught in double handed dinghies, this week offers the perfect introduction to spinnakers, and basic racing skills such as starting, mark rounding and laylines. Our friendly instructors will run a variety of sessions to test and develop your skills as you work through the RYA Start Racing and Sailing with Spinnakers modules.

There is no need to worry about getting any specific, specialist clothing. We provide all of that. All you’ll need to bring is your swimming togs, towel, footwear for on the water and some warm clothes (thermals/fleeces) to keep you nice and toasty.

For the complete experience add the residential package and your child can stay at the Centre for the whole week, looked after by our awesome house parents. They ensure the children are up for breakfast and ready for the day ahead, as well as organising games and activities for the evenings. They are also there to offer a friendly presence and words of reassurance for anyone who may be feeling a little homesick.

Whether your child stays at the Centre as a residential participant or comes as a day participant, these activity weeks are great for helping to build your child’s confidence and develop their communication skills.

All in all a truly unforgettable week and fantastic holiday adventure.
