LEARNING TO SAIL
Our School's Sailing Programme operates on weekday afternoons with Secondary Schools arriving by 2pm and Primary Schools by 3.30 pm. We currently have 2 schools each afternoon but for the 2021/22 school year will be trialling having two schools in some sessions so that we can increase the volume of children who attend. If you are a Principal or a Parent interested in seeing if your school or childs' school can be on the programme please contact our Chief Instructor Sylvester Thomas to discuss further.
If you have a child who is at a school not on the programme we may be able to fit them in so long as you can get them to the school alternatively they may be able to attend Saturday Sailing.
All lessons on the School Programme are free. The direct overhead associated with the sailing lessons covers the following: instructor wages, boat repairs & maintenance and transport to/from schools - which amount to a cost of U$10 per lesson per student. Unlike swimming, there is no finite number of lessons as you can continue learning to sail for many years. We aim to teach sailing to persons aged 8 - 80 years.
Each Saturday we allow students who attend the Schools Programme during the week to come and sail on Saturdays. There are three sessions - intermediate which rums from 9.30am to 11.30am, beginners which runs from 10.00am to 12.00pm and advanced from 12.00pm to 1.45pm. We expect sailors to use their own transport (find their own way) to the School at weekends. We also allow students whose school is not part of our programme to attend individually on Saturday mornings. It is very busy and therefore we will split the attending children into groups and then brief them and get them onto the water. If they arrive after the start of a briefing for a group, they will need to wait for the next briefing. If they arrive late, they may not get on the water, as numbers are very high.REGISTER HERE!
