Our Menai Dragons Sailing Squad is an opportunity for budding young Sailors to progress, develop and refine their Sailing knowledge and skills.

The Squad will take their sailing to the next level and see them entering local and regional events as part of Team Menai Dragons. ⁠

Each week the session will cover different aspect of Sailing depending on the conditions.

So, whilst some kids are doing the same old, why not do something different and get inspired into a lifetime of sailing.

Our world class instructors will be there every step of the way to guide, instruct and support.

The Plas Menai team consist of a very experienced team of 3 coach assessors and no less than 9 advanced dinghy instructors all with great experience of sailing on the Menai Strait.

 Please bring a waterproof jacket, warm clothes and a hat if it's cold; if it's warm you will need sun screen, sunglasses, a hat and cool clothing. Whatever the weather you will also need footwear to wear on the water (old trainers).
