NYC Nippers 2017

This year’s NYC Nippers course welcomed the largest group of eager children than ever before to our club. Over six weeks in May and June, our adventurous 6-8 year olds bravely dipped their toe into sailing, many of them for the first time.

Teenage sailing course

Do you have a teenager who would like to try sailing but doesn’t want to be in a group of 7-8 year olds? We have the perfect course for you!

We have a course for teenagers this summer C1 6th- 16th June and C3 10th – 21st July. No boat required and no previous sailing experience necessary.

You will be sailing with other beginner sailors of a similar age and using the club boats so 3-4 people in each boat. It is a great introduction to the sailing course in a fun and social environment and will help build confidence to helm and crew in boats.

Course 3 is available to full and family members only but C1 is open to potential members also so bring a friend!. Here is the link to book;
