Junior Sail Training is open to all junior members of Coniston Sailing Club aged 7 or over (this does not include temporary members).
The sail training is run by a Senior Instructor, Dinghy Instructors, Assistant Dinghy Instructors and experienced volunteers.
The training is overseen by the club RYA Training Centre Principal (TCP) Simon Colvin. Simon can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org
Each session starts at 10am and the juniors should be changed and ready to sail at that time. Boats will be rigged and launched as part of the training session.
All juniors should be appropriately dressed and prepared for the weather conditions on the lake.
Juniors wishing to do the sail training must book a ticket via the website.
A completed Child Health Form must be filled in and given to the TCP prior to the first session. Click Here to download Child Health Certificate
All juniors and parents are requested to view the following documents:
We follow the RYA Youth Sailing Scheme and log books can be purchased from the TCP. The log books will be retained at CSC so they can be updated and reviewed by the instructors before, during and after sail training sessions.
The juniors will be divided into groups according to ability and the training will be delivered accordingly.
CSC boats will be allocated by the instructors. Details of the CSC boats can be found in the Boat Policy.
Juniors may use their own boats once the senior instructor has approved them.
There will be a break for lunch and the sessions usually end between 3.30pm and 4pm. The weather conditions may dictate the timing of the sessions.
The juniors will be expected to help to put the boats away at the end of the training session.
A junior taking part in a Junior Training session must have a responsible adult (18 and over) on CSC premises for the duration of the training session. If that adult is not the parent/guardian, but a designated person, the details of that person must be given to the organiser on the appropriate form. Parents/guardians will be expected to help rig the boats and also to put them away at the end of the sessions, as well as helping out generally during the day.
For more information or to register please contact the TCP.
